barbecue, wine, and chanson française
What a wonderful celebration of the prise de la Bastille!
As every year, the annual street fair in front of our church provided us with a way to introduce new people to our French church. After the Holy Communion, we enjoyed the visit of about 200 people and shared food, music, and French wine all together in the garden.
Thanks to our music director Cynthia Wuco, who prepared a great selection of French songs for us, we sang along with accordionist Victor Prieto as you can hear in this video. You can learn more about Victor Prieto here.
We would like to thank everyone who helped with setting up the decorations, serving the food, cleaning up; everyone who donated French books that we sold in front of the church. This celebration is growing bigger every year, and without your help, it could not have been such a success.
Thank you, et à l'année prochaine !
