Praised be Jesus Christ! On November 30, St. Andrew’s Day, Sisters prepared for us an extremely fun carnival – Andrew’s Vechornytsi (evening party). We were looking forward to that event very much, and we took a long time to get ready to it. We looked for costumes… and we were rescued, we were saved, because only people in costumes were allowed to entry! Mykyta, Ms. Oksana and Sr. Halyna painted us. We were really thrilled with it and enjoyed that a lot. After a tasty dinner, which was cooked by Ms. Nataliia and Sr. Yanina, we became utterly absorbed with a joyful activity and lots of contests. How much fun and dancing we had there! Everything was highly interesting! Sr. Kseniia explained us that fun evening was the end of Ordinary Time, and thus we began our Advent, the time of joyful awaiting for Messiah’s coming. We are grateful to Our Lord for all those things He gave us, for our day center, for our faith, for people helping us, for volunteers and animators – Kostia, Karina, Hoderdza, for our priests and Sisters.
