Crib Service

A large gathering of children, parents, grandparents and friends gathered on Christmas Eve for the Crib Service. The children were encouraged by Megan to dress up so that they could play different parts in the Christmas Story. The story was told from the perspective of the manger cat  – Patricia. Nicki, dress as an angel, helped as gradually the tableau was filled with angels, stable mice, an assortment of other animals, Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus of course. Then came the shepherds with their sheep and finally the three kings bearing gifts.
The winged angel then led the children to look at the Crib Scene in front of the font before they got out of their costumes and went home with a little book about The Christmas Story.
