Family Advent Program
A Night in Bethlehem – Saturday, December 17
Free parish-wide interactive family event | Parish Gym
1:00-2:30 p.m. or 3:00-4:30 p.m.
The target audience is 4/5 – 10 yr old (younger siblings welcome) 
Come experience a Christmas program like never before! Families will wander through the bustling Bethlehem marketplace and discover what life was like when Jesus was born. Unlike your typical “living Nativity,” everyone will create unique keepsakes as they interact with local shopkeepers who share the Christmas story. And…you’ll love talking to Mary and Joseph and hearing about the miracle of Jesus’ birth.

Arrive at the  gates of Bethlehem where your family will be counted in the Census and then head where you will encounter the marketplace filled with shops such as:  

  • Pottery Shed
  • Artist Hut
  • Scribe’s Tent
  • Weaver’s Shop 
  • Spice House & Bakery
  • The Stable 
We need both adult and teen (grades 6 and up) volunteers to make this a wonderful faith-filled experience for families. There are two shifts available plus set-up and take-down opportunities. Please help where you can.
