This event will take place
on December 17 following the Divine Liturgy (we will practice on December 3 and 10). Please encourage your children to participate
in this beautiful event. Please advise your children, especially your high school students that we need their presence which
is a fine and necessary example for our little ones. (Even if our older students do not wish to be a character in the play,
we need their help and support in preparing the younger children for the Christmas play). Please talk to Ergini Martnishn
