You'll also have the chance to win raffle items including gourmet baskets, handcrafted goods, and one of the "12 Trees of Christmas" decorated by our parents, students, faculty, and staff. Visitors are also welcome to visit the creche in Lauralton's century-old chapel in Mercy Hall. A longstanding Lauralton tradition, Christmas in the Mansion transforms our historic campus into a spectacular showcase of the season.
