Mark your calendar for Dec. 9 and 10, from 7:30 to 9 p.m., when the Greccio Living Nativity will be in place at the Shrine of St. Anthony, 12290 Folly Quarter Road. Join the Franciscan Friars, along with the members of the St. Louis Catholic Church Youth Ministry, as they commemorate the birth of Jesus in the manner of St. Francis of Assisi in the little town of Greccio, Italy. Legend has it that the Christmas Creche or Nativity Scene, as it is commonly called, began in Italy in 1223 when St. Francis of Assisi re-created the Bethlehem scene at Greccio. The service of prayers, Christmas carols, and a living Nativity will take place in the Red Barn (in the Chapel if there is inclement weather). Following the Nativity, guests are invited to enjoy refreshments of hot cocoa and cookies. A free event for all in the family.
