St. Francis de Sales Celebrates Christmas

School /skool/n. NeWS / n(y)ooz/ n. pl.

Once again, the Rockaway peninsula came alive with a birthday bash suited for a King. This wasn’t just any celebration! It was the annual St. Francis de Sales School Christmas Concert, to mark the birth of Jesus Christ. Students in grades Kindergarten through Grade 8 performed for a packed gymnasium. They sang traditional Christmas carols as well as some new ones. This year the fifth-graders reenacted the beautiful nativity play and, as usual, the best part of the show was the grand finale performed by the entire student body. What a festive and spiritual celebration to remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas, and as the smallest voices on stage sang, “Happy Birthday Baby Jesus!”
