Indeed the parish fiesta was a celebration of both the young and ‘the young at heart’ at the annual Children’s Day, with the theme “Superhero Academy,” held last June 7, 2015 at the Parish Center Hall. It was an awesome party where everyone came in costume, dressed up in their favorite superhero, or had their face painted to be the strong and powerful characters.
The parish center was spectacularly transformed into a superhero wonderland with lots of balloons, decorations and a colorful stage backdrop of Gotham city.
There were lots of terrific activities for every boy and girl— such as arts and crafts, mask making, face painting, glitter tattoo, photo booth, hair and nail salon, and an obstacle course with various sport activities. Kids of all ages had fun in joining the party games, and won lots of prizes. Everyone enjoyed the yummy food and snacks, refreshing drinks and delicious desserts that were served. It was a delight to see everyone go home with lootbags filled with snacks and treats.
The most memorable part of the afternoon was, that the entire audience was treated to an interactive skit: “Jesus the ultimate superhero” staged by the Youth of San Antonio- Antiochers (with JJ Yulo). The kids watched earnestly in seeing Jesus transform hearts and trust God’s plan. At the end of the program, we announced the winner for male and female Best Costumes.
This event was made possible by the Family Life Ministry headed by Doy and Jeannie Bitanga, Karen Blanco and the Youth of San Antonio (Luke 18, Antioch, and Single Young Adults) headed by Crissy Castillo, Reg Galvez, Tina Cuyco(decorations), PishaBanaag (graphics) and Kevin Kramer and AlyWijangco (program hosts).
