SOUNDBITE (English): Monsignor Robert Weiss of the St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic church"Well, this Christmas is certainly a very different Christmas for all of us. And I think it's changed us all from this day forward// This is the kind of place where people care for each other and watch out for each other. And to have all these people just innocently slain in a senseless act. //3. NAT SOUND: Church singing 'Joy to the World'4. SOUNDBITE (English): Monsignor Robert Weiss of the St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic church"We need to come together around the things that are going to hold us together, not things that are going to pull us apart and I think that's what they find in their Christmas celebrations this year that what can we do to bind us together to keep us stronger as a family."5. NAT SOUND:Monsignor: "Merry Christmas."Worshippers applauding and shouting. "Thank you, father."NOTE: Following bites overlayed with shots of church and memorial6. SOUNDBITE (English): Carol Bartek, Church worshiper and resident"In this community, what I have seen is. It didn't make any difference what church we went to we were all one. We were all together.

That's it."STORYLINE: Newtown celebrated Christmas amid piles of snow-covered teddy bears, long lines of stockings and heaps of flowers as volunteers manned a 24-hour candlelight vigil in memory of the 20 children and six educators gunned down at an elementary school just 11 days before the holiday. Well-wishers from around the country showed up Christmas morning to hang ornaments on a series of memorial Christmas trees while police officers from around the state took extra shifts to direct traffic, patrol the town and give police here a break. "It's a nice thing that they can use us this way," Ted Latiak, a police detective from Greenwich, Conn., said Christmas morning, as he and a fellow detective, each working a half-day shift, came out of a store with bagels and coffee for other officers. The expansive memorials throughout town have become a gathering point for town residents and visitors alike. A steady stream of residents, some in pajamas, relit candles that had been extinguished in an overnight snow storm. Others took pictures, dropped off toys and fought back tears at a huge sidewalk memorial in the center of Newtown's Sandy Hook section that is filled with stuffed animals, poems, flowers, posters and cards. Police have yet to offer a theory about a possible motive for gunman Adam Lanza's rampage on Dec. 14. The 20-year-old Newtown man, who lived at home, killed his mother in her bed before carrying out the massacre at the elementary school, then killing himself.(****END****)
