Paul VI's Grand Christmas Performance

Paul VI's Grand Christmas Performance from EMSBTV on Vimeo.

A choir of 10 Autistic and Down syndrome children from Paul VI High School in Ahuntsic took centre stage at the Johnson & Johnson's Research and Development Building on December 15, leading a holiday program which integrated the employees and students. Created and organized by Antoinette Mercadante, an employee of Johnson & Johnson and mother of a student at Paul VI, the theme of the program was “Christmas Through The Eyes of a Child.” In planning the event, Ms. Mercadante wanted to give the special needs children an opportunity to break out of their shell by performing in front of more than 100 people, followed by an exciting holiday-themed day.
