Christmas at the Crib
December 6, 2019
National Shrine Museum of
On Friday, December 6, 2019, our friends from the area gathered around the manger at the National Shrine of St. Therese for an annual Christmas Tradition.
The night started with Fr. Bob Colaresi, O. Carm. sharing the conversion story of St. Therese, where she put aside her selfish ways and let God’s love and mercy move through her.
After her story, parishioners for local churches read the story of the first Christmas by the life-size Nativity Scene. We also presented gifts to the baby Jesus.
The night concluded with Holiday Shopping at the Carmelite Gift Shop, cookies and cocoa, and a visit from St. Nicholas himself!
Thank you to everyone who came out! Please join us for our next Event gathering. Our Walk with Jesus will be April 3, 2020. Please call 800-621-2806 to learn more or to participate.
