On Sun., Jan 15 our parish had the Santa Nino Fiesta, a major celebration in the Phillippines.
It began in the church's courtyard  with the Sinulog Dance. All those who brought a staute of the boy child Jesus, which looks like the Infant of Prague, only dressed in red and looks like a child, formed a line and did the sinulog dance as they processed into church.

Once in church the statues were placed in front and were blessed. We had exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the rosary was prayed by all in church.

The Sunday Mass was celebrated and at the end of Mass those who brought the statue once again did the Sinulog Dance out of church into the parish hall for a Filipino potluck. The church was filled as many Filipinos came from Tucson to join the celebration.

And of course, to end the day, we have the beginning of a beautiful sunset over the mountains by our church and school. The beauty of these sunsets never fail to make me stop and pause and wonder how God can paint such colorful and different sunsets all the time.
