Last Saturday, November 7, the Catechetical Ministry sponsored a Christmas Card making workshop for the Sunday School children. With the Yuletide season fast approaching, and the cool breeze of November already in the air, this children's workshop is a fitting preparation to usher in the most joyous season of all. And what better way to greet the birth of our Savior, but through personalized Christmas cards made by the children of the parish's Sunday School.
Spearheaded by the SLRP catechists (Ate Lydia, Ate Leila, Ate Julie, Ate Kate, the sister of the SRA congregation and many more) and with the generous support and assistance of the parish youth, last Saturday's activity was a welcome break from the calamities and gloom of the recent months. Through the communitarian togetherness of the children, the youth and the not-so-old members of the CM, it was a fun- and spirit-filled afternoon of joyful giving and cheerful symbiosis. Everyone had a great time, especially the kids, while doing what they enjoy best - having fun while working for God's glory!
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
Come end of November, these Christmas cards will go on sale at the parish in time to usher in the Advent season. Watch out for these rare limited edition works of art, done by our yet to-be-discovered Amorsolos, Manansalas, Ocampos, Franciscos and Hidalgos.
