Christmas Pageant 2012

The children of Sunday School and Wednesday Night music programs will present a Christmas Pageant on Sunday, December 16 at 10:00 a.m. in the parish hall. All are invited. They will sing the Quempas Carol, a delightful, dance-like carol beloved in Germany before and after Martin Luther. It combines three Latin carols, the first being Quem pastores, hence the title “Quempas.” The children will sing the three songs in English translation starting out with “He whom shepherds once came praising.” The audience will join in with the refrain: “God’s own Son is born a child, is born a child, God the Father is reconciled, is reconciled.”
Rehearsal will be Sunday, December 9 in the parish hall, and dress rehearsal on Wednesday, December 12 at 6:00 p.m. in the parish hall. Pizza will be offered at 5:30 p.m. All children are welcome to participate in the pageant. Those who could not attend rehearsals may participate without singing. Call time on December 16 is 9:30 a.m.; the show time will be 10:00 a.m.
