Only a few short weeks ago, St Madeleine’s Parish came together at the family Christmas Eve mass with over 2000 people to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Our celebration started with a humorous pageant about Joseph and Mary’s journey to Bethlehem and the trouble they had getting a place to stay. During the Mass the singing was joyful and happy and we saw the story of Jesus and His family acted out again as Fr. Vincent read from the Gospel. The children who participated were fantastic and as the picture shows it was a wonderful way to start the Christmas season. A happy and safe new year to all.
