Dear Second Grade Christmas Gospel Parent,
A few words about the Christmas gospel for Christmas Eve:
We have reserved pews for the children reading the Christmas gospel. These are in the transept in the front of the church, next to the organ. Those who are in the children’s choir will participate in both the gospel and their children’s choir parts.
The children will meet in room 112 next to the school/church foyer at 3:30 p.m., for the 4:00 p.m. mass on Christmas Eve. The 4:00 p.m. is a very crowded mass (and parking lot!) It would be a good idea for your family to arrive early to get a seat.
We ask the children to wear their "Sunday best." We have tinsel halos and shepherd head-dresses prepared for each child, which the teachers will give them in the classroom that day. The children process into the mass. They sit in the transept next to the organ console. Any child in the choir will stand in the choir area, as usual, for their singing part in the mass.
The children will process out to room 112, where they will turn in their “costumes”. Plan to pick up your child from room 112.
Parents may sit in any part of the church.
The children are doing very well. They are great readers! They add richness and beauty to this celebration through their joy, sincerity. Their enthusiasm is infectious!
Thank you for participating in this mass.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Mrs. Nash Ms. Chermak Mrs. Kellam Mrs. Ade Ms. Broncato
