Holy Trinity pageant a treat for the soul

Early yesterday afternoon I had the chance to attend the annual Children’s Christmas Pageant at Holy Trinity Church. And even though I said this after last year’s production, it bears repeating: it was probably the most adorable 15 minutes that I will spend this entire holiday season.

More than 50 children, ages 3 to around 13, participated this year, as Mary and Joseph, angels, shepherds, Wise Men, animals and narrators. Holy Trinity Parish Faith  Formation Coordinator Tricia Kull said the children only had two weeks to pull everything together, including learning their roles, practicing songs, and remembering where to stand.

At times it was like herding cats (or cows and sheep in this case) for Kull, who had the difficult task of keeping 50 children gathered and focused on the task ahead. But when it was time to file out of the rehearsal space and into the church, the young actors were more than ready.  

The whole pageant from beginning to end was only about 15 minutes. But in that short time, the large audience (mostly proud parents and grandparents) was treated to well-prepared narration, passionate acting, angelic singing, and a surprise guest.

I’ve included a few photos here, but if you’d like to see a gallery of many more, click here.
