The Word and Associates, popularly known as “The Catholic Band” having made its debut on the streets at carniva earlier this year, with its presentation depicting the first book of the Bible, GENESIS, feels motivated to continue on the carnival parade next year, 2012, and will be presenting the second book, EXODUS.
The members of the band committee see the presentation of this band as a promotion of Catholic Culture and Identity for we believe that carnival has in several ways gone down the road of vulgarity and this is not our culture. The Word and Associates therefore sees itself as offering an alternative to those who would wish to see our national festival return to lovely costumes and creativity. We enjoyed ourselves immensely in 2011 and we look forward to greater participation and enjoyment in Carnival 2012.
With costumes designed by Chris Santos and Gregory Medina there will be six sections depicted: 1. Departure of the Slaves from Egypt; 2. Parting of the Red Sea 3.Egyptians; 4. The Burning Bush; 5. The Elders; 6. Land of Milk and Honey.
The band launching takes place on Sunday, November 20, with a Cooler Fete at Green Meadows, Santa Cruz, after which designs and further information will be available on our website. So look out for this year’s presentation and keep in mind this little ditty:
The WORD is out again
Put it in your brain
This year EXODUS is our name
Good behaviour is our game.________________________________________________________________________________________ **DISCLAIMER**: User comments posted on this website are the sole views and opinions of the comment writer and are not representative of Camsel/Catholic News or its staff.
