After two years without face-to-face, the Catholic night show Christmas by the Lake returns to Mar del Plata (Argentina), with 160 young people on stage.
On this occasion, the show will take place on January 6 and 7, 2023 at the Santa María de la Armonía ranch (Route 2, km 382.5), in the Mar Chiquita district, Buenos Aires province.
Christmas by the Lake seeks to bring a message of spirituality and hope, and is organized by more than a hundred young people from seven communities in the Diocese. Every year, the event summons thousands of spectators.
On a 200-meter stage, 160 young people between the ages of 15 and 25 will go on stage to remember the life of Jesus and how his passage through the world changed humanity.
It is a show of lights, sound and staging, which takes place in the middle of nature.
The work links the Gospel message with the reality of young people’s lives today.
The functions are scheduled for 8:30 p.m., but the property will be open from 6:00 p.m. so that the public can enter and tour the park and the historical gallery. There will also be a handicraft sector and a gastronomy service specially prepared for the occasion.
There will be a bus service that will depart from Colón and Tucumán streets, in the city of Mar del Plata, at 7:15 p.m. The organization suggested that the public bring beach chairs, a coat, and insect repellent.
Admission is free, and you can collaborate with a contribution voucher of 500 Argentine pesos (1.7 dollars) for adults and 300 pesos (about a dollar) for children under 12 years of age.
Those who participate in the work live in the place for ten days to experience a special climate and spirituality, a way of embodying values and cultivating ties.
The ultimate goal is to be able to evangelize through beauty. With this objective, they intend to reach the public not so much as actors but as “witnesses” of what they believe and want to live.
