A Filipino religious organization here in Jersey City – Couples For Christ-Foundation for Family and Life (CFC-FFL) – held their Christmas Party last night (Saturday. December 20, 2008) at Maria Room of Our Lady of Mercy Hall in Greenville section of JC.
The event was attended by approximately 150 people, which also included Kids For Christ, Youth For Christ, and other guests.
CFC-FFL (Chapter 1 – Jersey City) is divided into different units, and each performed a couple of numbers. One unit danced their own version of Pandanggo Sa Ilaw – a native Filipino dance in which dancers balance a lit candle lamp on their palms. Some groups sang Christmas Carols and religious songs.
Members of Kids For Christ re-enacted the nativity scene with full props and costumes; while the members of Youth For Christ sang songs. When everyone’s done, the dance floor opened.
The event was EMCEE’d by CFC couple Alton and Abby De Castro and DJ’ed by Elmer Karaan (phone: 201-4339380).
