Christmas Day Celebration in the Felician Haiti Mission

28 Dec

The day finally arrived, the Nativity of our Lord, the birthday of Jesus. Our kids have been preparing all month for this special occasion of our salvation. First, it was preparing the food and decorations, then practice for the plays and the choir.

The choir and Christmas pageant was ready and, as the children gathered, the excitement filled the air.

The story of Birth of Jesus was told, and the children listened intently.

The kids prepared the story of the Good Samaritan and a modern-day version of welcoming the stranger and caring for one another.

After, there was some singing and dancing…

Then it was time for Christmas dinner, Christmas cookies, and soda.

All were so anxious for the moment when St. Nick would arrive with his gifts for all.

We are so grateful to the many people who helped us make this day a glorious celebration…our benefactors, Sisters, and friends. Thank you, Sr. Victoria, for sharing this Christmas with us here in Haiti. Thanks to Eric and his girls, Abby and Kaitlyn, for being with us to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas. And thanks to our teens, our youth group here in the Felician Mission, who gave of themselves the whole day in service.

After the kids left, the teens had their Christmas dinner and helped to clean up a bit. We ended this glorious day with the Celebration of the Eucharist with Fr. Dickenson our newly-ordained priest.
