The birth of Je­sus cel­e­brated on Christ­mas Eve

Euroa Gazette - - DISTRICT NEWS - By ELLEN DOYLE

THERE was stand­ing room only on Christ­mas Eve at St John’s Church, Euroa where we cel­e­brated Je­sus’ birth.

A num­ber of well known Christ­mas Car­ols were sung, led by Sr Ber­na­dine Kelly, Julie O’Brien played her vi­o­lin and Yvonne Carr on the or­gan and pi­ano. The mu­sic and singing was beau­ti­ful. Fr Tony Hill had ar­ranged the Christ­mas Car­ols leaflet so all present could join in the singing. Car­ols sung in­cluded “The First Now­ell”, “Glo­ria in ex­cel­sis Deo”, “Hark! The her­ald an­gels sing”, “Watch­ing and wait­ing”, “What child is this” and “Once in Royal David’s City”.

Af­ter the Carol singing, Christ­mas Eve Mass was cel­e­brated by Fr Tony Hill dur­ing which the child Je­sus was laid in the man­ager.

SONGS OF JOY: Julie O’Brien leads the con­gre­ga­tion on the vi­o­lin while Sr Ber­na­dine Kelly sings along and Yvonne Carr plays the pi­ano in the back­ground.
