Tawau : Children are to be guided not to miss out the true spirit of Christmas. It's an occasion that we teach them the miracle of Jesus birth, God's greatest gift to mankind. Holy Trinity Church, through the effort of the Catholic Women's Apostolate held the annual Children Christmas Party on 14th December 2014 to bring about the festive mood and joy for the children, developing a sense of belonging, nurturing friendship and cultivating peace.
Some 300 children, aged between 5 to 12 years old accompanied by their parents gathered at the Holy Trinity Parish Hall to celebrate the Children's Christmas Party.
This simple but meaningful occasion brought tremendous joy and happiness to all in attendance, including their parents. They met old friends and made new friends. The PPC Chairman, Andrew Kiat and a few other members were present including Sister Aquinas fsic. They were around to lend support to the event.
The program began with an Opening Prayer led by Fr. Johnny followed by games and activities. A short sharing by the game coordinator touched on the meaning of Christmas. A series of questions on the birth of Jesus were posed to the little children and the responses were encouraging. It was an opportune occasion for the children to learn more about Jesus.
It was indeed a wonderful environment to see the children accepting each other freely, embracing one another without hesitance.The get together set the mood for the festive season. Wishing everyone a Blessed and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2015.
