Pasko na naman! Christmas is the longest and most celebrated holiday among Filipinos. So in the spirit of cultural redemption, how about a celebration of Christmas in a Filipino way? It can be a small step toward redeeming Christmas from a commercial and consumer-owned culture, in order to restore focus on the Reason for the Season.
Paskong Pilipino – Saturday, Dec. 18, 4-6 p.m. at St. Paul United Methodist Church in Fremont – is the Filipino gift to the weaving of a colorful tapestry that is multicultural America. Pasko is more than an event, it is an enduring experience which is visually engaging, culturally empowering, and spiritually uplifting for human flourishing.
This year the Pasko celebration is sponsored by Lake Park UMC in Oakland, St. Paul UMC in Fremont, and Valley Faith UMC in Sunnyvale
