Many of the other students acted out the Gospel story as Father Ariel Lustan read it.
Students from All Saints Catholic School did the 1st and 2nd readings and sang the responsorial psalm and alleluia. They are not shy at the microphone but are quite good at public speaking. (future lectors at our parish).
At the Gospel, Father A, as the children call him, came to the altar to read the Gospel Story of the Birth of Jesus Christ.
Caesar Augustus gave the proclamation with the snap of the scroll as Father A instructed him.
Later, Father A received the Baby Jesus from Mary and Joseph at the Presentation of Gifts and laid him peacefully into the manger-a gift to all of us always!
Father A for his homily called all the children to sit on the floor up front by him and he had a power point presentation for his Gospel.
God the Father spoke to us from the sky with his voice only, telling us a Savior would be coming to us here on earth.
Mary gave birth to Baby Jesus and Joseph was the proud foster father.
Father Ariel's vestment shows the Holy Family.
Merry Christmas to all of you!
