Preparations for Christmas Day fetπŸŽ„πŸ’«πŸŽ

Our foundress, Blessed Mary Angela had a great love for the Christmas season celebrating the Incarnation of our Savior and Lord. She would celebrate with the poor children by having a big feast for them with food and gifts. We too continue our dear foundress’ passion and love for the poor by doing the same here in the Haiti mission. Here are a few pictures of our praparations with the help of our teen volunteers who helped with the decorations, food preparations and the liturgy.

Our first Christmas Pageant in Haiti

The Annunciation!


Joseph doesn’t understand how can this be?


The Angel tells Joseph not to be afraid to take Mary as his wife.


Mary and Joseph adore the newborn King, Jesus!


The Shepherds see an awesome Star shining brightly, and the Angel brings tidings of great joy and good news: “Peace on earth and good will to all!”


The visit of the Three Wise Men bringing gold, frankincense and myrrh!

Our unexpected guest for Wigilia

On Christmas Eve, it is our Community tradition to celebrate the Polish Wigilia. As we prepared our Polish food the best way we could here in Haiti, we worked diligently all day to be ready for the first star to appear so we could begin our solemn feast. As a sign of our Christian hospitality, we always set an extra place setting for Jesus to come. Everything was ready, when we heard  a child  singing by our door. We looked at each other and knew we had an unexpected guest for dinner; Donaldson joined us for Wigilia. We shared with him the wafer and explained our tradition as we offered each other peace and pardon. He then tried some of our Polish food. As it got darker, he knew he had to get home. It was a joy to have our unexpected guest join us for Wigilia.
