LIVE CRIB 2019
A Christmas Nativity Procession by Candlelight
Sunday, 8 December 2019– 19:00 to 21:00
Sacred Heart Church (Procession Map)
Yau Ma Po Street, Sai Kung, Hong Kong
The inspiration for the Live Crib is St. Francis of Assisi, who celebrated Christmas 800 years ago, by setting up the first known nativity scene with live animals in the Church at Greccio near Assisi in Italy. He used only straw, a manger, an ox and a donkey to help people to experience the humanity of Jesus through all the senses: by seeing, smelling and hearing the stable.
Join us for our annual nativity procession around Sai Kung, with a live pony, Mary, Joseph and the Angel Gabriel.
Children are invited to come dressed entirely in white, to join the procession as a host of angels. Bring your own white wings, white halos and white lanterns.
After the procession there will be carol singing and Christmas refreshments outside Sacred Heart Church.
Organised in association with HK Jockey Club.
FREE AND OPEN TO ALL
Donations are welcome
