On December 25th the students and staff of Marist Solidarity Cambodia as well as ex-students and friends gathered to celebrate Christmas. The Christmas story was presented by the students of Lavalla directed by teacher Vey and accompanied by Br Michael and a choir of students. This was followed by a prayer and the placing of the characters of the nativity crib. All those present were asked to write a prayer or the name of someone they wanted to remember this Christmas on the back of a Christmas angel. These were hung around the nativity. A special guest at Christmas was our friend Tony McDonnell who came at short notice to help us to celebrate this first Christmas without Br Terry.
