Felician Haiti Mission celebrates Wiglia

29 Dec

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.

Eric reads the story of the birth of Jesus!
Sr. Inga tells the story of the Christmas wafer and the meaning of the empty chair and the extra place setting for whoever comes to the door. It is for Jesus.
As soon as we sat down, the doorbell rang. It was Stefanie, one of our teens, so she joined us for Christmas Wigilia.
She was our Jesus visitor.
