St. Patrick’s invites all to annual nativity showcase

St. Patrick’s of Scranton Catholic Church is planning a nativity showcase 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Jan. 7, 2018, in conjunction with the Epiphany of Our Lord.

It is a lovely way to close the Christmas season. Everyone is invited to view the beautiful and historic St. Patrick’s of Scranton house of worship adorned for Christmas, and see the many nativity sets that members and friends of the parish have placed. Descriptions placed by some of the sets share their special meanings to their owners. There will be many different sizes, number of pieces, and varied artistic interpretations of the nativity.

This is the third year for the parish community tradition. At the first nativity display, in January 2016, there were more than 150 sets, with more than 200 in 2017, and more sets planned for 2018. Nativities are welcome from community members, Catholic and other religious denominations, to be displayed at the showcase. 

St Patrick’s has been a part of the Scranton community more than 150 years. Members are working to raise funds to replace the current 100-year-old church, which has reached its maximum usage life. Freewill donations will be appreciated and will go to the building fund.

Cookies will be served by the Altar Society. St. Patrick Church of Scranton invites everyone to this special showcase day on Epiphany Sunday honoring the nativity.
