Christmas Eve Children’s Pageant – 2017

Children’s Christmas Eve Nativity at the 3:00 Mass

Every year, the Christmas Eve Mass features a children’s Nativity Pageant. This year it will take place at the 3:00 Christmas Eve Mass in the St. Rose School Gathering Hall. Thank you to Elisabeth Gietz, Maureen Reidy, and Laura Callahan for volunteering to coordinate the nativity this year. Children in grades K through three are shepherds, angels, inn-keepers, and wisemen. If you would like your children or grandchildren to participate in this prayerful pageant, please call Liz Gietz at 203-526-0890 or e-mail her at There is one rehearsal, which will take place on Sunday, Dec. 17 at 1:00 in the Holy Innocents Faith Formation Center. What a wonderful opportunity to share in the joy-filled gift of God’s Son!

There is also the need of someone to create a sketch for the program. Please send to Elisabeth if you desire to use your talent in this way!
