On Sunday, 17 December 2017 our parish family gathered once again for our annual Christmas Luncheon & Program, celebrating the birth of Christ in anticipation of the upcoming Feast.
We were happy to welcome among us that day His Eminence, Archbishop Nathaniel. Immediately following the Hierarchal Divine Liturgy, the children of our Sunday School presented a traditional Nativity program in the church.
After that, everyone was invited into the hall where they enjoyed a delicious Lenten luncheon hosted by our Youth Group (assisted by a group of parents and friends). Then, our children offered a program of traditional Romanian, American and even Mexican Christmas songs, followed by some dances too.
As in previous years, we also welcomed our very special guests of the day… Santa & Mrs. Claus! They distributed gifts to the children and stayed around a little while to take pictures too.
Christ is Born! Merry Christmas to all!
