St. Luke RC Church

Children's Mass Pageant

DURING CHRISTMAS EVE, at the 5 pm Children's Mass, our children helped animate the liturgy of the Mass by portraying many of the figures in the Christmas story. Their biggest part – to bring Baby Jesus into the church and place Him in the crèche (manger) in the Nativity Scene in front of the altar.

Our special thanks to the parents for involving their children in this special event. As Jesus said: "Let the children come to Me." May God continue to bless your families as you guide your children in their faith journey. — Fr. Jerry
