Long night of Christmas

First Christmas in Jerusalem

Its our first Christmas in Jerusalem. For our evening mass we went to Shepherd’s field together with the whole community in Jerusalem–Sisters, Brothers, Associates, Volunteers, Friends–and the Central leadership Team (CLT). The mass was beautiful and we also sung some Christmas carols in different languages. After the mass we had our own (Novitiate) Christmas party. The party was filled with fun, games and gifts. Then for Christmas day, we had Mass and Lunch at the Guest House. The lunch was delicious and festive.

After Christmas, we invited the CLT for lunch. We had a lovely lunch, Irish Coffee and fruit salad. The meal was very well prepared. We also had a good sharing. We shared about our apostolate in the Guest House and in Kehila (Hebrew speaking catholic community in Israel).

Certainly our first Christmas in Jerusalem was beautiful and meaningful.
