There was lots of laughter and sugar-coated fun at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Edmonton on Friday evening, November 29, as 33 youth from five parishes in the diocese participated in the Second Annual Great Anglican Gingerbread House Build-off. The young chefs and architects made a supper of homemade pizza and naan bread, then set out to construct their delicious masterpieces; devouring the extra icing and candy building materials for dessert.
Getting in on the action were parents and youth leaders from HTAC and St. Matthias, as well as Bishop Jane who dropped by to help apply icing and stick walls together, while admiring some of the intricately designed cottages.
“This is what I call a great Friday night,” said the Rev. Danielle Lepine, assistant curate at HTAC. “It’s so much fun to see the kids all laughing and having fun together.”
