Description

St Thomas the Apostle 2017 Christmas Eve Nativity Mass

This is an invitation to students Prep to Grade 6 at St Thomas to participant in the dramatisation of the Nativity Gospel at the Christmas Eve Family Mass (6pm). This is a popular Christmas event that has become tradition for many of our St Thomas families over the past 20 years. Last year we had over 70 children participate. This Nativity dramatisation is run by a small group of volunteer St Thomas parents with the support of our school and parish.

Participants will attend 2 rehearsals held in the church at 2.20 pm on Friday the 8th of December and Friday the 15th of December. Before registering please ask your child what their prefer role is Angel, Shepherd or Sheep (prep- Grade 4). Grade 5 and 6 children please nominate what main role/s they would like, Mary, Joseph, Caesar Augustus, Caesar Servant, Registrar 1 & Registrar 2, Angel Gabriel, Towns folk. All main roles will be selected by pulling names out of a hat, with older children (Grade 5 & 6) getting main role preference. We have a large number of costumes but children can decide to wear their own if they have one. White Eucharist dresses are a popular choice for our angels who are lucky enough to own one. All correspondence is done via email but we are happy to talk with you should you have any further questions.

Please register your child/ren if they are keen to participate by Wednesday the 6th of December. There is NO pressure to be involved but we would REALLY appreciate early responses so that we can let classroom teachers know who is involved and we can organise costumes etc.

We are looking for a baby Jesus, please contact us if you know of any newborns whose family would be happy to attend. (No practise required)
