NHA School Year End Celebration

The parents, the teachers, and the St. Laurence House Staff prepare the food
for the huge celebration of the Year End of the Nazareth House Apostolate Kabala School.
No fancy commercial kitchen here for this big feast, food for everyone was cooked over the outdoor fire.
Everyone waits anxiously, bowl in hand, to partake of the delicious celebration feast.

A bucket filled with water to quench the thirst in the hot sun appears on the scene.
The thirsty children line up to receive some water.
The dinner bell is sounded and the children run to fetch some food.

The banquet has begun.

Lucy and Ann Marie tend to the task of making sure
that everyone has a heaping bowl of food.
Join us at this blog tomorrow for more pictures of our students and the Celebration Feast of a Year at NHA School.
