"Cookies and Carols"

Blessed Sacrament's Young Thespians
Thirty four angels, shepherds, innkeepers and even a Roman Emperor greeted the Holy Family on Saturday, December 10th, during the “Cookies and Carols” concert.  The annual nativity re-enactment, which formerly took place before the first Christmas Eve Mass at Blessed Sacrament, has been presented during the annual concert for three years now.  Parish children from both the religious education program and the school have the first of three rehearsals inNovember, working with parents and volunteers to memorize their lines and assemble simple costumes.  This year’sre-enactment featured Jimmy Young as Gabriel, Bella Williams as Mary, and Mikey Williams as Joseph.  Older sister Rosemary Williams narrated the brief play, which was well-received by the congregation.   Father Cregan said of the performance, "The kids did great."

The author, Susan Doyle, is the Director of Religious Education at Blessed Sacrament
