On December 21, 2010, His Eminence Metropolitan PHILIP hosted the Annual Christmas visit of the Choir from St. George in Little Falls, NJ at the Archdiocese Headquarters. This visit has become an annual tradition, and always fills the headquarters with the joy of music, and good fellowship.
The choir began the singing of Christmas hymns outside the front entrance of the house and then made its way into the house to greet His Eminence. They were led by the pastor, Very Rev. Elias Bitar, and Mrs. Christine Lynch, the choir director. After receiving a blessing from His Eminence, the choir continued their beautiful singing in the living room. At the conclusion of the musical program, everyone gathered in the chapel for evening prayers.
Finally, the choir was treated to dessert and coffee in the dining room.
As always, it was an evening of joy and good fellowship during this most blessed season of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
