LIVE CRIB 2016
A Christmas Nativity Procession by Candlelight
Saturday 10 December 2016 - 19:00 to 21:00
This year for the first time we teamed up with Resurrection Church, as our popular live pony procession began at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Sai Kung and ended at their Christmas Concert at Sai Kung Promenade.
The inspiration for the LIVE CRIB comes from St. Francis of Assisi, and seeks to draw our attention to the real meaning of Christmas - the birth of Jesus.
As always, we are very grateful to Dr Christopher Riggs, Head of Veterinary Clinical Services at The Hong Kong Jockey Club, for supporting this event.

Participants mentioned that they enjoyed this event and agreed that their understanding of the Catholic Church's teaching have been enhanced.
