The Christmas Crib was the idea of St Francis of Assisi, a close friend and mentor of our patroness, St Clare.

It's fitting, therefore, that in our parish especially we have a devotion to the crib. This evening a number of parishioners brought their cribs to be blessed for the coming feast. It was great to see so many different cribs of all different styles - lots of opportunities for us to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. Take a look at the picture gallery below to see some of the amazing variety of cribs that people brought tonight. Hopefully this can become an annual event in the parish, when each year we ask God to renew His blessing on our celebration of His Son's birth.
