Nativity Story

Today we came together to listen to the wonderful Nativity story – the birth of Jesus. We listened to readings, sang together, placed baby Jesus in his manger, put the final symbol on our Jesse Tree and lit the Christmas candle. A beautiful gathering to remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas.

Beautiful Bambinellis
