01-01-2023 FAITH FORMATION CORNER FORMACIÓN EN LA FE

On the occasion of the last session of faith formation on December 18, 2022, the Holy Spirit Church catechists took turns in leading their students to the Christmas tree located on the Hall to meet St. Nicholas, not in his bishop vestment.

What does St. Nicholas have to do with Christmas? St. Nicholas was a Christian bishop who helped the needy. After his death, the legend of his gift-giving grew. St. Nicholas transformed into the legendary
character called Santa Claus, who brings Christmas presents to children around the world. The pronunciation of St. Nicholas in Dutch is Sinnterklaas, which is where the name Santa Claus came from. Special thanks to Sam Billante who gamely agreed to play the role of Santa Claus by wearing Santa’s easily recognizable outfit. Our students received token Christmas presents through Santa from an anonymous donor. Find here a few photos taken during that day.
