A STAR will lead them …

29 Dec
On Monday, December 21, the great STAR was visible over Jacmel.
All of our kids were looking for the great STAR and followed it to the Felician Mission.
On the morning of December 22, Fr. Lauture JeanClaude, director of Pope John Paul II Catholic School for the Diocese of Jacmel, received a barrel full of school supplies and t-shirts. We thank especially the Archdiocese of Newark Youth Center for the hundreds of t-shirts and all of you who send us school supplies throughout the year.
On December 23, the STAR led Eric Moyer and his family to Jacmel. Left to right: Eric, Abby, his wife Cassandra, Mitchell, Kaitlyn.
By the afternoon, the kids followed the STAR that was to proclaim the birth of JESUS on December 25. They were here to get their
t-shirts and to signup for the great feast.

Abby and Kaitlyn were there to help.

Eric and Jean Philippe work diligently, setting up our new security cameras.
Cassandra gets our 500 plus cookies ready.
Mitchell, with the help of our new pump from Tom Conboy, Director of the Newark Archdiocesan Youth Center, prepared 65 soccer balls for gifts.

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.
