On December 6, prior to the community Mass at the Sanctuary of St. Paul the Apostle, Fr. Rey Reyes, Local Superior, gave the signal for the lighting of Christmas lights around the Makati compound. Lanterns in varied colors broke through the darkness of the early evening. Indeed, it began to look like Christmas in the Makati community.
The figures of the Holy Family near the entrance of the community were beautifully refurbished and made ready for the viewing of the people. Candles would be provided, along with the Prayer to the Holy Family, for the devotees.
