The Mount St. Joseph University baseball team kicked off the holiday season by participating in their 12th Annual "Deck the Halls" Volunteer Service Day.  Each year, the student-athletes on the baseball team dedicate one afternoon to helping decorate Mother Margaret Hall for Christmas. Mother Margaret Hall is attached to the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati's Motherhouse and is located across the street from the main campus of the Mount. The Motherhouse is a landmark in western Cincinnati and well-known for its exquisite chapel and beautiful, historical rooms.

The Lions flooded Mother Margaret Hall in matching attire to put the Motherhouse in the spirit of Christmas.  Over the course of a few hours, they were able to put up and decorate 12 Christmas trees, as well as dozens of hall and ceiling decorations.
