FRACKVILLE, PA.--: St. Michael’s Church extends its annual holiday invitation to one and all to attend A Christmas Candlelight Processional Pageant, which will be held Sunday, December 5 at 4 p.m. in St. Michael’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, West Oak Street, Frackville. “This is our annual Christmas gift to the community,” is the way Rev. Archpriest John M. Fields characterized this pageant, which was first presented by the parish children in 2004.
The program will include the story of the Birth of Christ, with Scripture reading, a reenactment of the Nativity scene by the children of the parish, and an audience carol sing-a-long with many of the traditional Christmas carols, including Ukrainian carols.
A brass ensemble will perform before the program and also provide accompaniment during the presentation.
The pageant will include the participation of children portraying Joseph, Mary, the three wise men, angels, shepherds, and villagers.
The audience will sing along as traditional carols are interspersed with the narration of the Gospel accounts of the Nativity of the Christ Child.
After the program, the outdoor Christmas tree lighting will take place.
Then all are invited to enjoy a covered dish which will be served in the parish hall and St. Nicholas will make his annual visit. The feast of St. Nicholas is December 6.
There is no admission and the program is open to the public.
