The Blessing of the Crèche & Christmas Pageant
Thu, December 20, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
A service for children and their families, sung by the choristers of the Saint Thomas Choir. This service is specifically designed for children and young families. The choristers will sing carols, accompanied by harp, and the readings and prayers will be read by members of our Sunday School using a children’s’ version of the Christmas story. During the service, the figures that make up the Christmas Creche will be brought forward and put in their various places. The Rector will tell the children a traditional story and all children will receive a small gift. There will be a special order of service that the children can take home. Children are welcome to come to this service dressed as one of the characters in the Christmas story – Mary, Joseph, angels, shepherds, Magi (three wise men or kings), ‘Star’, inn-keeper, or one of the animals traditionally associated with the Christmas creche – ox, ass, lamb, donkey. Sunday School and Nursery at Saint Thomas Church. Jesus brought all manner of people to him, including children. In everything we do, we work to follow the perfect, loving example of our Lord and warmly invite your family to join our Nursery and Sunday School programs. The children are important members of our parish community and we would love to see them each and every Sunday!
