It was a month ago that we began our preparations for the feast of Mother Angela. We asked our teacher Omanie if her daughter, Deborah could teach 4 of our young girls liturgical dance. This is very common here in Haiti whenever there is a big celebration there is always dance for the Kyrie, Gloria, and Thanksgiving after Communion. Thina, Edwina, Fabiola and Mona worked with Deborah for weeks learning 3 dances to praise God. Omanie, made their white robes out of white sheets.
Omanie spent time with our kids preparing them for the liturgy teaching them new songs for the Mass. Fr. Elicien taught our boys how to play the tambou (drum).
Truly the spirit of Mother Angela was experienced in the preparations.
