Ayer en Parroquia San Cristóbal

Yesterday afternoon the Youth Group of San Cristóbal, Luz de Mañana, held a music program to celebrate the birthday of their group. It wasn't as well attended as we had hoped; there was a very hard rain in the afternoon and the streets were flooded, but everyone who attended had a great time.

The Youth of our parish are very talented. They sang, they danced, they performed a skit, and the President of Luz de Mañana, Peter Wright, gave a reflection. The Men's Extravaganza Choir, The Christian Brothers, and a dance group from Iglesia de Cristo were guest performers.

El Gran Trio de San Cristóbal was the house band. We also had several sing-a-longs. We were honored to have our Bishop, Rt. Rev. Julio Murray, with us, too.

As is required at all events en la Iglesia Episcopal de Panamá, a tombola (raffle) was held for a copy of a book on St. Paul's leadership methods. The winner was Tania Cole of San Cristóbal. And, another important San Cristóbal tradition: after the program we served empanadas and cake!

Your bishop has way too much fun; singing, clapping and tambourine playing and all.

Gosh Padre is that much fun allowed in the church? And how is it that the Bishops from Panama are always so handsome? I remember Bishop Shirley used to be confused for Joe Lewis. I don't go to church but if I lived in Panama I think I would be tempted to go to San Cristobal! Good Job Padre. and I love the dresses of the Dancers!

I See You!
