Public invited to attend Little Flower Christmas program

The Little Flower Catholic School children and staff invite everyone to attend their Christmas program on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Tilman Hovland Auditorium at Rugby High School.

A press release submitted by music teacher Glenda Mack said the preschool students will begin the program with a Christmas medley, followed by kindergarten students, assisted by their fifth grade buddies.

The students in grades 1-6 will then present “Miracle at Midnight.” Mack’s press release said, “This musical play takes us to Bethlehem as the mayor and her assistant are announcing the new census decreed by Caesar Augustus and the imposition of new taxes. The townspeople are ready for the influx of visitors who will be traveling to Bethlehem for the census, and they are joyfully surprised by the miracle of the Savior’s birth. The play will take us to the scene of the angels preparing for the proclamation of Jesus’ birth, to the shepherds in the field receiving the good news, and to the scene of the three kings preparing for their journey to find the newborn king.”

“Take a break this Sunday afternoon from the busy routines of preparation for the holiday season and reflect on the true reason for celebrating Christmas. It is the presence of Jesus in our hearts that makes it all special,” Mack wrote.
