On Christmas Eve, preparations focus on our traditional Wigilia celebration. As with everything, we had to start the preparations ahead of time, so only the last-minute dishes of fish, pierogi, and borsch soup were being baked and cooked. The decorations for the feast were done, and all was ready for sharing the Christmas wafer of pardon and peace. It was a joy to have Eric and his beautiful family with us for this sacred time of sharing and gratitude for the blessings and challenges of the past year.

Abby and Kaitlyn were there to help.
The STAR was doing the leading and guiding as preparations were being done in readiness for the Nativity of our Lord, JESUS CHRIST. By the end of the day, we had about 200 kids signed up for the feast. Some more gifts needed to be prepared; a count was taken to be sure that the cookies and candy would feed them all; and a check was made that the decorations would be finished.
