Children’s Nativity Service – Christmas Eve 2022

24th December 2022
Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Harpenden

We are delighted to say that we will be having a Children’s Nativity again this year. The service will be at 5.00pm on Christmas Eve, and is a lovely reminder to the children about the reasons for celebrating this great feast. This year we are dramatising the story “Leah, the Innkeeper’s Daughter” which will be read by an adult, but we do need a cast of many – (shepherds, angels, wisemen, townsfolk etc.) So, if you would like your child to take part please come to the rehearsal in church on Thursday 23rd December at 10:00am to 12.30pm, when we will be reading the story to the children and asking for them to take various parts (there are no speaking parts!). Your child does need to be at this rehearsal to take part on Christmas Eve.

We have some costumes, but if you have anything suitable then they would be most useful.

The children need to be primary school age and if they are taking part in the nativity they will need to be in church at 4.30pm on Christmas Eve. Please let me know as soon as possible if they would like to take part, in the Nativity Service (contact Ginny St John Glew,
