White Gift Sunday 2010
Posted 6 Dec 2010

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.

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.

The sheep seems to be somewhat of a scene-stealer.
