1300 Leslie Street St, Bonaventure Parish Center
Patricia Avila– a music teacher and early childhood educator- and Orfe have joined their talents to share this beautiful tradition. Every Sunday until December 23, children will learn, enjoy and practice several Christmas carols in Spanish at the St. Bonaventure Parish Centre, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. The children will sing the carols in the Novena of December 22, and the community of the St. Bonaventure Parish Centre will be invited.
The Novena is an ancient devotion that consists of 9 consecutive days of prayer for a specific intention. In Colombia and Ecuador, there is a long-standing tradition where families and friends come together to pray, sing and joyfully praise and await the Nativity of the Lord. The Novena prayers are prayed daily from December 16 to 24.
