Wednesday, December 19, Saint Julie hosted the fifth evening of Simbang Gabi, a Filipino tradition of a celebratory nine days of Masses and feasts . The beauty and pageantry of this Filipino custom is quite a sight as the children prepare for the arrival of the infant Jesus. There is festive music and traditional garments. It is a beautiful celebration to await the birth of our Savior and King!
It is always a memorable event as Saint Julie Billiart hosted for the 26th year the Simbang Gabi Filipino Christmas novena. The feast that followed was a sight to hehold!
