Christmas Season

The parlour games at the Parish Staff Christmas party. Something that is mostly reserved for children in the UK but is adored by Filipinos of all ages and classes. The party was held on New Year's Eve which here resembles the blitz with every family lighting so many firecrackers that the noise is non-stop from 11pm to 1am.

The intrepid welcome the New Year with Roman Candles, I'm glad the paschal candle isn't that kind of roman candle!

Young and old join in the dancing, this particular number is the "dance routine" hit of 2005, "BOP IT!"

Happy Children at one of the many Christmas parties held for the underpriviledged due to the generosity of parishioners who give their time and money

And last, but certainly not least, on January 1 we welcomed Fr Patrick into our community and it's great to have him, he's a really friendly and happy priest.
Mabuhay! Maligayang pagdating sa ating tahanan.
In Christ through Mary,
