Celebrating Christmas

This year we were invited by the Phoenix-i Magyar Református Missziói Gyülekezet (The Hungarian Reformed Mission Church) to have our Christmas celebration there, after the service.

Location: at “Living Waters” Church – 3720, W. Sweetwater Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85029


We gladly accepted, thus you will be able to see our children from the Napocska Hungarian School there on December 23rd. I will attach their Invite. It is in Hungarian, but here’s the main information:

The service starts at 11am and will be held by reverends Sandor Szabo and Andor Demeter. After the service, the children are going to recite Hungarian Christmas poems and will sing Hungarian Christmas songs as well. This will be followed by the visit of Santa who is going to bring them some nice presents.

This will be followed by the traditional “Kántálás”, that is similar to Christmas caroling with members and visitors of the church.

Those who would like, can join us for lunch at the Orange Grove Estate. Traditional Hungarian meat soup will be served (húsleves), followed by Scnitzel with mashed potatoes, and poppy seed/walnut rolls with coffee.

Address: 8401 N. 67th Ave., Glendale, AZ 85302. Lunch is $8/person.

For reservations call: Maria Schmied @ (602) 942-9777

These are a few pictures from last year. We hope to have another wonderful Christmas together!
