Corpus Christi Hosts Trunk-or-Treating Monday

Children deprived of their Halloween festivities can go car-to-car at the church parking lot Monday.

Corpus Christi Hosts Trunk-or-Treating Monday

The Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church parking lot will host a Trunk-or-Treating event Monday open to area residents whose children want to celebrate Halloween.

Msgr. Jim Mahoney said a member of his congregation organized the event, in which children go from car to car for their Halloween candy.

"Many neighborhoods are still dealing with downed wires and trees, making door-to-door trick-or-treating unsafe for children," Mahoney said. By holding the event at the church parking lot, children will be able to safety show off their costumes and collect Halloween candy.

Parents who want to get into the Halloween spirit can even decorate their trunks with Halloween costumes.

Trunk-or-treating will take place from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Monday. Anyone interested in participating should show up by at least 12:50 p.m.

"We ask that people carpool with other families as much as possible," Mahoney said, "[and] please consolidate your candy with neighbors and friends that will be joining you."

Corpus Christi will also collect nonperishable food for Catholic Charities Food Bank, and they ask anyone who is willing to bring $10 for that cause.

Chatham mayors reserved Saturday afternoon for official Halloween observations, including door-to-door trick-or-treating.
