In the spirit of the season, the Filipino Pastoral Ministry hosted a Parol lighting Festival on December 13, the 3rd Sunday of Advent. Parols of different shapes, sizes and colors made by the kids as well as the adults were lighted in a ceremony after the 3PM Filipino Mass.
The Parol Making was a Christmas Project of the Catechism class culminating into the blessing and lighting of all Parols on December 13. There is no greater symbol of the Filipino Christmas spirit than a parol. For Filipinos, making a parol is an expression of shared faith and hope.
