Christmas Social & Talent Show

January 16, 2011

On Sunday, January 9 our Parish Church School sponsored a delicious meal following the Liturgy and all enjoyed the food and fellowship.  A meal of pasta Bolognese, baked ziti, penne ala Vodka, sandwiches, and ham was organized by our Church School Coordinator Kathryn Larkin, and prepared by the church school parents.  A full complement of salads, assorted desserts and beverages were also in ample supply.  After the meal was well underway, our annual talent show commenced.  Once again, the all but hidden talents of our young folks emerged to charm and warm the hearts of those gathered. The Talent Show ran about a half-hour, with performances ranging from violin solos to Jiu Jitsu demonstrations.

Each of these performances was well thought out, skillfully executed and obviously, each had been carefully rehearsed in advance.  Together, they bore evidence of the interests and activities of our students in their lives beyond the Parish.  Once again, the wealth of their talent and energy was inspiring; their willingness to share this talent with us was refreshing.

While not officially on the program, Charlie Kaczinski, one of our youthful adult members, joined in the fun and presented a round of jokes, much appreciated by all in his audience.

Photos of the event can be viewed on the photo page of our website (here).
A surprise snow had blanketed the church the day before.  It was not a blizzard like the previous storm, but just enough to give concern that the parking lot would be safe and useable.  Thankfully, our Council President, Mark Guyer, had come by on Saturday with his sons, Alex and Kalvin, and they cleared the lot for us.  We are so grateful to them.

Again, we give our sincere thanks to our Church School families, and especially to Kathryn for making this annual event such a success.
