St. John the Baptist-Vermillion students share sights, sounds of Christmas


Students at St. John the Baptist Catholic School-Vermillion shared the sights and sounds of Christmas at their annual Advent Christmas concert.

Students at the rural school sang traditional Christmas songs to a packed house at the historic St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and showcased several piano and violin solos. Individual classes performed songs accompanied by ukulele, handbells, recorders, xylophones, and other percussion instruments.

The program began with a procession of the entire student body followed by a presentation of gifts by the Three Magi to the infant Christ Child in the manger.
