MYP Christmas Day at Holy Trinity Church, Whitestone, NY — Friday, December 8, 2017 By Tom Leavens

On Friday, December 8, 2017, the MYP held their annual Christmas Day at Holy Trinity Church in Whitestone, NY. The evening started with celebrating Mass for the Immaculate Conception with the Holy Trinity parish. The group then shared a delicious meal together. Rectors Dina DePaola &
Diana Roach presented videos & commercials showing the Magic of Christmas—reminding the teens of the goodness of people & the light in the world, Jesus. We talked about
Advent & each teen received a button of the Advent wreath. This led to making ornaments & our traditional gift wrapping of presents to be delivered to teenagers at the Briarwood
Family Inn.
As all of you remember, Christmas Day is always one of the best events. It reminds me of the people from the MYP that I have shared so many Christmas memories with. I am remind-ed of the birth of Christ, and how He is so present to me every-day from my experiences in the MYP. This event is always a ’light in the darkness’ for me. I am so grateful for the MYP!
