Children of all ages celebrated the Christmas season with family and friends at St. Mary’s Dominican High School’s annual Breakfast with Baby Jesus. Nearly 400 attended the December 9th event, hosted by the Alumnae Association. A Living Nativity, presented by the Dominican High School Drama Club, took center stage in the Sr. Ambrose Reggio, O.P. Gymnasium.
At crafts tables, young visitors made angel necklaces, snow globes, ornaments, and decorated Rice Krispie treats. From her rocking chair, Mrs. Claus read Christmas stories to attentive listeners and children took keepsake photos with Santa Claus.
Children wrote letters, complete with colorful art and Christmas greetings. Entertainment by merry elves made for a festive celebration. Dominican President Dr. Cynthia Thomas led everyone in song before the cutting of the birthday cake for Baby Jesus.
Heartfelt thanks to all for donations of non-perishable food items that will be distributed to an area food bank during the holidays and New Year.
