Youths, around 120 of them in all from six of the villages in the Toledo District of Belize, came together to celebrate Christmas Mass at the St. Peter Claver Church, in Punta Gorda Town. The youths desired to have such a celebration so they were very much a part of the planning of their liturgy and the celebration of the Mass. A youth group even transported their musical instruments from their village and provided the music for the Liturgy. Each youth group wore their festive colors and all enjoyed a lively Mass together. The spirit of the youths was alive and joyful.
Following the liturgy, the celebration continued in parish hall where each youth group organized a short presentation including poems, dances, and short skits. At the conclusion of their time, they all enjoyed a warm meal together. The youths took their buses back to their villages joyfully and energized.
