1Basilica of St. Stanislaus, Bishop and Martyr, Chicopee, MA: The San Damiano Youth Group’s presentation of Greccio in Chicopee was a beautiful remembrance of the Nativity of our Lord! The Basilica community would like to thank the event organizers, Rebecca James and Monica Kelly and all of the youth members of the San Damiano and Morning Star Groups, musicians, equipment, construction, sound, lighting, animals, and refreshment supporters for making such a beautiful event possible. This event would not be possible without the selfless efforts and time of so many youth, parents, and friends of their youth. They also thank the kitchen crew guided by the Holy Name, Vincent de Paul, and the Rosary Societies for providing refreshments and caroling, in addition to Mr. James Perkins for dedicating his time to direct the cast of youth to display the true feeling of the beauty of our Lord’s birth. Their hope is that this event brought peace and joy into the lives of all who attended, and continues to remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas and the humbleness of our Lord.
