St. William Parish in Northeast Philadelphia will present its Living Nativity on Saturday, Dec. 17 from 6 to 7 p.m., following the 5 p.m. vigil Mass.
The event is designed as a multilingual prayer service featuring readings from Scripture and singing of Christmas carols plus refreshments of hot chocolate, coffee, tea and cookies.
All are welcome to bring their own crèche to be blessed, their singing voice and an expectant, Advent heart.
The event will take place in the church parking lot at 6200 Rising Sun Avenue, Philadelphia.
