Tomorrow (12/24) at St Paul’s, 4:30pm: Our annual Christmas Pageant!

Saint Francis designed the Christmas Pageant at Greccio, Italy in the year 1223. Saint Paul's Christmas Pageant has been a community fixture in Chestnut Hill for decades. We continue the tradition of Francis by erecting an altar over the manger for communion when the telling of the Christmas story is over, about 5:15 p.m.

Of Francis' pageant Friar Thomas concluded, "Jesus was born in a manger where animals would have eaten the fodder of the hay. There he also gives himself for us with supreme and indescribable love in the bread and wine of communion which his followers consume to their great spiritual benefit." Over one hundred parishioners combine to tell the story of Jesus' birth. In Jesus, God has embodied compassion and peace. We hear that message, are moved by it, and take it out to our families and neighbors. It is our merry Christmas!
