Children's Christmas Eve Mass

posted Dec 29, 2015, 3:25 PM by Church Office
The Children's Christmas Eve Mass was a great success! The youth participated in the Mass through providing a musical prelude of Charlie Brown Christmas and Happy Christmas Holiday (a selection of traditional Christmas hymns) with Kate Chverchko on clarinet, Anastasia Tocimak on trumpet and Michael Tocimak on saxophone. High school students Brady Bizzarri and Monica Tocimak then portrayed Joseph and Mary in a version of the Posada. The elementary students then re-enacted the Gospel of Luke. Finally, Nicholas DeSimone and Ian Gray, Daniel Gray, and Garrett Gray brought forth the gifts.Monica Tocimak also played her piccolo with Hugh Grattan during a meditation hymn of Silent Night. It was wonderful to see the youth so actively involved in the Mass.
