For nearly a millennia, we create nativity scenes in an attempt to place the emphasis of Christmas upon the worship of Christ rather than upon secular materialism and gift giving. The nativity scene first created by St. Francis in 1223 was staged in a cave near Greccio. It was a living one with humans and animals cast in the Biblical roles. Join us as we celebrate this tradition by dressing the children up as the Biblical characters! A wonderful service for children! Sign up on Facebook!
