An impressive dramatisation of biblical events

The Saint Joseph’s Parish at 12am this morning celebrated a Eucharistic mass to mark Christmas Day as the birth of Christ.

Youths of the parish, in an effort to depict the gospel reading of the birth of Christ, acted out a musical drama by dressing up as Joseph, Mary, the three kings; even baby Jesus, whilst another group played their part as flocks of sheep.

This the first time the Gospel is being dramatised by the youths depicting the events that took place in the bible.

Main celebrant, Fr. John Auram, during the homily said Christmas is a time for sharing with family and friends, a time to escape the daily pressures of work, a time to spend with your children and a time to give.

Fr. Auram stressed on the importance of Christmas, adding that we should be thankful for yet another year accomplished.

Christmas is a time to celebrate. Foremost is the celebration of the birth of Jesus.”

An impressed Fr. Auram thanked the youths and kids for having made Christmas for the parishioners one to remember.

“Little children are God’s instruments to us and we must be thankful always for the life we have.”
