It is a pleasure, during the holiday season, to become immersed in tradition especially when it involves the vitality of young people, who are always happy to display their skilfulness and their talents. On December 16, a group of young people from Maison des enfants Marie-Rose, in Beauharnois, came to perform their annual concert for the Sisters at Maison Jésus-Marie.
You had to see the sparkling eyes of the children who were so happy and excited to find themselves outside of their usual surroundings to stage their performance. It was also quite stimulating for the audience, who were treated to dance and song demonstrations illustrating the diversity of the emerging talents of these 6 to 12 year olds. We are reminded that this house of arts and culture promotes the skill development and potential of young people, who are introduced to an array of artistic activities, while not being pressured to perform. This is an approach largely inspired by the principles put forth by Mother Marie-Rose promoting the full development of the human person.
