L’ARCHE CHRISTMAS PAGEANT — Members of Winnipeg’s L’Arche community bring to the stage the second annual L’Arche Christmas Pageant Dec. 5 at Covenant Christian Reformed Church, in the city’s River East neighbourhood. The narration of Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem and the events leading to the birth of Jesus were acted out in tableaus by L’Arche members, accompanied by community-member musicians. A highlight of the evening is the singing of traditional Christmas songs and renditions of Silent Night in various languages, reflecting the cultural diversity of L’Arche assistants who come from many different countries. Three hundred people attended and contributed free will donations of nearly $900 for Winnipeg Harvest foodbank.
