The annual Christmas play took place on Sunday evening, 4 December, 2011.
The performance was conducted by the girls who reside at The City of Hope, as well as the children of workers who live on the grounds. The play commenced with choir singing and each child had a role, either as angels, shepherds, kings or even ‘market scene’ characters. Of course, the girls are at their best when they are dressed up for the occasion.
The volunteers helped to prepare the girls, particularly those with speaking roles and helped provide the music with the Salesian Brothers and Fransiscan Brother from St. Bonaventure College . Fortunately, the play flowed smoothly with no stops! After Mary and Joseph left the stage, the visitors were invited to go outside for refreshments, but the girls continued to dance and sing.
