Hoy en la Parroquia San Cristóbal

Tomorrow is Mothers' Day here in Panamá. It's a big deal, a national holiday. Everything will be closed. We celebrated Mothers' Day at San Cristóbal with a single, bilingual service. The youth choir sang a version of the Maginificat en español, but we didn't get any photos of that as the Lovely Mona and I forgot to hand the camera to someone, and we were both busy with the choir.

At the end of the service the Men's Fellowship announced The Mother of the Year, Mrs. Barbara Smith, president of the ECW. They had a lovely presentation. Mrs. Adica Moore said a poem about mothers, and Mr. Milford Peynado gave a lovely talk about Mothers' Day and the importance of mothers. Then members of the Men's Fellowship escorted Mrs. Barbara Smith to be acknowledged as Mother of the Year, and last year's Mother of the Year, Mrs. Violet Seale, pinned a corsage on Barbara. After all that, the Men's Fellowship hosted a breakfast for everyone on the patio. A fine time was had by all!
