Bringing Joy to Shut-ins by the Choir at St. Nicholas ROC, Bethlehem, PA. - 12/26/16

On the second day of Christmas, the Synaxis of the Theotokos, seventeen members of St. Nicholas Church choir brought the joy of the Nativity to parishioners and many others in care facilities and homes.  The choristers came bearing gifts of poinsettias and gift bags of goodies.  But the greater gift was their cheerful singing of hymns, carols, and other selections of the season.  The happy sounds brought many elderly out of their rooms to listen and join in the singing.  In addition, during a lunch stop, diners were also entertained with commonly heard carols.  Everyone who heard the music, parishioners, facility personnel, diners, and the singers themselves, were all tremendously uplifted by the beautiful sounds of the Nativity.
