I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.

Today in the town of David
a Savior has been born to you;
he is Christ the Lord.
This will be a sign to you:
You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 

A Savior is here to be a great JOY in our hearts
today and always!
Merry Christmas dear friends and family!

photos were taken Christmas Eve 2011 at St. Matthew's in Voorheesville.
The Nativity is the beautiful artwork of Fontanini.
