Broadway’s Nativity Scene

Published

As we look forward to Christmas during this time of Advent, our school atrium has been transformed into a Nativity scene (sometimes called the Nativity crèche), a tradition first believed to have started with St Francis.

Children from all years have stopped throughout the day to reflect on the display, and many more have stopped to offer a prayer.

In addition to our Christmas Tree, to the left of the Crib, gold, frankicense and myrrh surround the figures of the three wisemen who will arrive at the crèche on the Epiphany.

The crib stands bare until midnight mass on 24th December as a reminder that the Christ Child is coming, and when the clergy of our parish church will lay the 'bambino', the baby Jesus, in his place, amongst us here in world.
