2016 Christmas Pageant
On Sunday, December 18th our traditional Christmas Pageant took place following Divine Liturgy. Once again our Sunday School children did an outstanding job of telling the story of Christmas through readings and by reinacting the trip to the manger by Mary and Joseph, shepherds and kings. Christmas spirit filled the air as parishioners joined the choir and children in songs of the season.
A "Spectacular" Evening
On Sunday evening, December 11th, the 4th Annual Christmas Extravaganza took place at Annunciation Church with over 100 parish family and friends in attendance, making it an event to remember and one to look forward to again next year!
Together, the parish enjoyed a beautiful and festive service of Lessons & Carols with our talented choir singing traditional carols from America, Lebanon and Russia along with traditional hymns in the Greek Orthodox tradition, with readings done by the children. Then it was off to Nicholson Hall, where the tables were covered in red & green tablecloths with centerpieces made from fresh cut greens. Everyone enjoyed the bountiful and delicious pot-luck dinner and we wish to thank everyone who helped setup, cleanup and brought something to share and make our dinner so special.
Christmas was in the air, the stage was set and waiting for our talented parish children and adults to entertain us, and they did just that! Our Master of Ceremonies, Sam Cooper did an outstanding job of introducing eight spectacular acts including voice, piano, saxophone, and clarinet. We are so thankful for all of our talented performers who made the evening so memorable: Audrey Cooper, Fr. Costin and Ana Popescu, Jack, Lucy and Genie Schaeffer, William and Jonathan Hight and Our Choir Sextet – Don Argyrople, Fontaine Dubus, Amy Gentile, Jen Jansen, Stacey Kevorkian and Fr. Costin Popescu. A good time was had by all.
