As in previous years, we would like to have our 2nd-4th grade parish children present the Christmas story as a ʺliving gospelʺ at the 2:30 p.m. Mass on Christmas Eve. In order to do this, we need at least two adult coordinators.
The responsibilities include assigning roles, costumes and props and walking the children through the script at rehearsal. This is a very simple presentation with no spoken parts. The Liturgy Office provides support through the scripts and access to the props and costumes as well as scheduling a dress rehearsal. The time and date of the rehearsal can be set by your schedule, any day of the week of December 18th, probably between 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., unless you have a better idea. Closer to the actual Christmas Eve event is better.
Parents or others who would like to take this project on should call or email Rory in the Liturgy Office at 847.620.3064 or firstname.lastname@example.org. VIRTUS training from the Archdiocese is a requirement for at least one coordinator on the team. Note: This is not (yet) a request for participants. A message about that and rehearsal times will be announced after coordinators have been designated. Thank you!
