Sunday, 5 December 2010 was the second Sunday in Advent, and White Gift Sunday at
Summerlea. For the occasion the young folks presented a non-traditional pageant called
"Matt and Lucy's Version Births", by Dot Saunders-Perez.|
Thanks to Susan McKenzie for putting it all together, and to Patrick Freud for some of the photos on this page, which are pickable to see a larger version.
The morning began with a presentation to Margaret Payette of the|
Lachine Food Bank. She did not turn around to be photographed.
|The candle of Hope was lit by the Troncoso family, Angela, Samuel, Ana & Alberto.|
|The WGS Players ready to perform.|
|Directrice Alayna instructs the players to get ready, she'll be back shortly.|
Matt (Jacob) and Lucy (Michelle) discuss their understanding of the play about to ensue.|
There seems to be some disagreement as three wise guys (Kevin, Peter & Keith) appear on the scene.
|The confusion continues as shepherds (Elizabeth & Samuel), angels (Caroline & Cassandra) and a sheep (Raphael) wander in.|
As directrice Alayna gathers the cast around Mary (Ana) & Joseph (Phillip),|
the different viewpoints are discussed.
|The sheep seems to be somewhat of a scene-stealer.|
|Following the play, the youngsters bring forward the white gifts.|
