Christian Worship Centres were a beehive of activity as faithful prepared to celebrate Christmas today.

Christmas Day is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ observed on December 25. Many churches as of yesterday had put up decorations in and out of the churches.

Different groups were practising Christmas carols and other entertainment items ready for the vigils last night and celebrations today.

The Holy Family Basilica church located in the Central Business District was readying for the vigil mass which was to be held yesterday at 7pm.

The assistant Father-in-charge Bernard Kabiu said yesterday was dedicated to confessions as hearts of faithful need to be cleansed before the celebrations today. “We started the celebrations on Sunday because most people travel.  A family service was presided over by Cardinal John Njue and  faithful brought food which we distributed to the poor,” Father Kabiu said.
