After Arson, A Road Trip For Christmas Pageant
CASA DE ORO -- When arsonists damaged the sanctuary of Santa Sophia's Church in Casa De Oro, it meant a lot of changes for the church's school.
The sanctuary was used for a wide variety of school functions, but none bigger than the traditional Christmas pageant that brings the entire school and its families together at one time.
Needing another venue as repair work continued, the entire school took a short road trip.
Thanks to the management of the Town & Country Hotel in Mission Valley, the school had the use of the hotel's main ballroom and surrounding conference facilities to organize the annual pageant and present it this week to what appeared to be an even bigger than usual audience.
The ballroom may not have been as sanctified a venue, but the energy and talents of the Santa Sophia students and families gave it a holy feel on this night.
Next year, school officials are hoping to return to the church, but publicly praised the Town & Country for its help this year.
