Participants for the St Rose of Lima Church Live Nativity prepare to rehearse for this year’s special event, which will take place Saturday, December 16. All are invited to gather outside the stable behind St Rose, at 46 Church Hill Road, following the 5:30 Mass that afternoon. Every year the stable comes alive with children and animals as they reenact the evening of Jesus’s coming more than 2,000 years go. The tradition of a Living Nativity was started by St Francis of Assisi. There will be refreshments and fellowship afterwards in Holy Innocents Faith Formation Center, also on the church property.
