Enacting the story of the Nativity for the parish is a heartwarming tradition at St. Jean’s. The more than thirty young people who participated this year really gave a wonderful effort in their reading, acting and singing. Thank you, too, to William Bousquette for his very fine piano introduction.

A festive reception in the school auditorium followed the pageant and, to everyone’s delight, Santa arrived with gifts for all of our good children and he spent a good deal of time talking with each of them.

The day could not have happened without the love and support of the families who helped with the costumes, chaperoned and brought food. Special thanks to Jill Bowers, Chair of the Family Life Committee, for organizing all of the busy work in mounting the production. The enthusiastic production team included Patricia Papadakis, Barbara O’Dwyer Lopez, Music Director, Richard Owen, Kendra O’Dwyer, PJ Bowers and Father John Kamas.
