Bakhita Villa Christmas Party 2018
21 dicembre 2018




This day the 18th of December, 2018 is a memorable one for all of us in Bakhita Villa! To God be the glory that the Birthday of Christ was celebrated for our Treasures.  The Christmas party began at 12noon with Opening Prayers, Christmas carols and followed by various interesting activities in the programme.

The celebration attracted lots of persons, our Treasures and their families, our neighbors, Friends of the Sisters of St. Louis, Ladies of St. Mulumba, Block Rosary children and other invited guests.

Sr. Patricia Ebegbulem Ssl, our Coordinator, in her opening speech, was full of gratitude to God, that we were able to celebrate the Christmas for our Treasures. Christmas is a time of joy when a King is born to us, our Saviour is born, a time to repent, a time to share gifts and bring joy to the less privileged of our society. She enjoined all present to relax and be happy as we celebrate.

The Block rosary children entertained us with songs, cultural display, choreography and other joyful activities, courtesy of Sr. Angela Onyema.The Master of Ceremony (MC) was very entertaining as we had laughter all the way. DJ had good music that we all enjoyed with dancing steps by both those in the kitchen, those serving food, those washing plates and neighbours.

There were lots of things to eat and drink ranging from chin chin, cold water and drinks of different kinds, doughnuts, small chops, rice, moi moi etc.

One of the climax of the celebration is the visit to Mother Christmas who with the generosity of our donors, distributed gifts to our Treasures, their families and all the children present. They received Christmas clothes, raw rice, cooked rice, and fairly used clothes for them to sell to support their businesses, Biscuits, drinks and Christmas hats were also shared.

The celebration came to an end with the closing prayer led by our Parish PriestRev. Fr. Michael Etekpo MSP with the Associate Rev. Fr. Collins Ugochukwu. They both blessed us and dance, dance, dance continued!!!

We thank God that it was a lovely celebration and everyone was happy.
We pray God to bless all our donors and meet them all at their points of need.
 
WE WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND MAY THE NEW YEAR BE FULL OF BLESSINGS AND GOD’S PROVIDENCE.
