From Greccio to Naples – The Nativity Scene of Our Lord

On the eve of the Epiphany of the Lord, join us as we explore the history, theology and beauty of the humble birthplace of Jesus. Brought to life by St. Francis and made into a work of art by the Neapolitans, the creche, or presepe, is a time-honored symbol of our faith in a God who so loved the world as to be born among us.
