To Bethlehem with Saint Francis – A Christmas Journey through Prayers and Songs


On December 18 (6.30 – 8 pm), Santa Rosa de Lima School English Secondary will host “To Bethlehem with Saint Francis – A Christmas Journey through Prayers and Songs” and a Christmas Concert, a ceremony now in its third year of existence.

The ceremony will remember the Greccio first Nativity scene, created by Saint Francis of Assisi. Three choirs from Santa Rosa de Lima English Secondary will enrich the ceremony with their singing, making the prayers more intense at the sound of their beautiful voices! They will be joined by Our Lady of Fatima Girls’ School primary and secondary choir and some instrumentalists from the two schools. The meditations for this ceremony will be proposed by our Director of Choral Activities and Director for Liturgical Music, Maestro Aurelio Porfiri that will also coordinate the musical part for this ceremony. Maestro Porfiri remarked, “We are very happy our school is getting attention for the level of our choirs, especially the secondary school choir. In these days they are having a workshop with a very famous American conductor that is very pleased with their level. Hope people will join us also to enjoy our other two choirs, primary and preparatory and the Fatima choir.” The Supervisor of Santa Rosa de Lima School, Sister Judith Alice Yuen FMM, will preside the ceremony. After the ceremony will be offered a short Christmas Concert. All will take place in the School Holy Spirit Chapel.
