Living Nativity

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

In 1224 Saint Francis of Assisi, best known as the founder of the Franciscan Order of Friars, created the first living nativity scene as a way to bring the Christmas spirit to the local villagers.  Just as Saint Francis had real people dressed in robes and real animals, so does our Parish Living Nativity.  

The Nativity Procession is a re-telling of the Christmas story with live animals, song, light acting, narration, and a candlelit walk.
