The Christmas Pageant offers the children of the parish a wonderful opportunity to reenact the Nativity story in the Gospel of Luke. The pageant takes place in both of our churches on December 24th during the 4:00 pm Mass. A long-time tradition of the parish, the children essentially form a living tableau of the gospel as it is being read by the presider. There are no speaking parts. Any child in the parish, ages 4 and older, is invited to join. There is usually one rehearsal where costumes are assigned, and the children run through what is expected. The annual Christmas pageants are coordinated by volunteers throughout the Parish.
