History credits St. Francis of Assisi with beginning the popular tradition of the Christmas crèche. In 1223 St. Francis invited the townspeople of Greccio, Italy, to gather at a cave outside the village to reenact the first Christmas manger scene. You are invited to join the Secular Franciscans of the Channel of Peace Fraternity next December 13 Sun at 3:00 in the Church to celebrate God’s gift of the incarnation.
