Nativity figures on display

Yesterday, our parishioners had the opportunity to see the new Fontanini figures for the Nativity in our new church. A group of generous parishioners sponsored them and with the exception of two shepherds, all the figures were on display yesterday in one of the rooms, as you can see from these few photos. All standing figures are 18 inches in height. The stable will be erected this weekend by Rick and Lupita Wesseler in front of the main altar, and a few characters at a time will be placed in the stable, starting with the cow and donkey and a few sheep on the first Sunday of Advent. More will be added on the following Sundays, until baby Jesus arrives on Christmas Eve.

  1. Thank you Father. I know how pretty these are, I have had a small-size set for 36 years and we take them out every Christmas. Merry Christmas to St. Francis!
