CLINTON HILL - Just two days after a fire tore through The Church of St. Mark and St. Matthew in Clinton Hill, parishioners aren’t forgetting their Christmas spirit and are giving back to the community.

The church hosted a party at a family shelter. Each child at the event received two gifts that were donated by parishioners.

This year was the second year the church held the event.
