Ang Munting Bituin
The annual Parol-Making Workshop held at Our Lady of Good Counsel has become a tradition to many Filipino-American children in the northern Virginia area. Many have kept the parol, or star lanterns that they've created each year. Others have given these parol kits to others as a way of sharing their Filipino culture to American friends.
Years from now, these children may remember that making a parol is part of their Advent preparation, together with attending Simbang Gabi and eating at a salu-salo every night for the nine days before Christmas. Paaralang Pinoy is proud to contribute to their memories and help them discover ways to share their culture.
