Christmas waves a magic wand over this world and behold, everything is kinder, gentler, and more beautiful.
To spread Christmas Spirit throughout our community and our City, the Ormoc Festival and Cultural Foundation together with the Sts. Peter and Paul Parish and in cooperation with Congresswoman Lucy Torres Gomez, is bringing you once again Light Up a Star. Now on its second year, the Light up a Star Christmas project originally launched on Dec. 11, 2011. We are all overjoyed with its immense success that is why we have decided to hold this event every year.
Essentially, this is a fund raising program of the Parish and of the Foundation for various projects; one of which is the coffee table book of Ormoc which we will be launching in a few months from now.
Our sincerest thanks to our dear Congresswoman Lucy Torres Gomez for her enormous help that brought this project to fruition. That Giant Star up there represents her. Also, our special thanks to our major sponsors whose names appear on each of the big stars atop these small Christmas trees. We would also like to thank all our donors of these stars around the Christ the King circle. Without you, the success of this project wouldn't have been possible.
May these stars brighten and bring light to our lives not only during this Christmas season but all throughout the years to come.
Thank you and Merry Christmas to all.
-Gloria T. Velasquez, Chairman
The older I get: the longer I hold on to a Holiday hug
The more I realize Christmas is a matter of the heart,
The more I enjoy giving than receiving,
The more I try to see Christmas through the eyes of a child,
The longer I sit in the glow of the Christmas Tree light,
The more wonderfully beautiful the Christmas story is,
The deeper my awe at God's infinite Love…
The more I LOVE Christmas.
