Oyster Bay, New York - So many participants braved the rain to join us for the first leg of our journey, which began in St. Dominic's R.C. Chapel. Participants began the tour seated in the pews learning a brief history of the church and its connection to the well known resident of Oyster Bay - Louis C. Tiffany.

As we made our way to the final destination - The First Presbyterian Church of Oyster Bay - our group had noticeably grown in number. Upon arrival, we were treated to a presentation and question and answer session by Pastor Jeffrey Prey on the history and architecture of this beautiful building, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Following Pastor Prey's talk, the Mount Olive Baptist Church's Gospel Choir took to the stage and regaled the crowd with several selections from their repertoire. The music was breathtaking and a perfect way to bring this years Yuletide Church Walk to a close.
