The Nativity scene came alive in Ambler, Montgomery County, last Thursday, Dec. 4 as members of St. Anthony of Padua Parish staged a live tableau of the birth of Jesus on the parish grounds. Volunteers portrayed the characters of the Nativity story, complete with sets and live animals, for two hours as guests walked by and reviewed the various scenes. Parish volunteers also served snacks and refreshments in the parish hall afterward. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
