Situated in Nazzarenu Square, it will will take visitors back to the life in Bethlehem when Jesus Christ was born and then move forward to meet St Francis, who in his great love for the mystery of the incarnation, created a replica of what happened on that Holy Night when our Saviour was born.
`The Betlehmites,’ at their various dwellings will greet visitors, who can then move on to encounter the Grecians and their lifestyle in a ‘live’ performance about St Francis and the Nativity of Greccio.
An exhibition of Christmas items, as well as the new mechanical crib will also be on display, built by various members of the community at the Jesus of Nazareth Centre.
Home made traditional Christmas delicacies will be on offer during the opening hours. Children will be given a little Christmas gift related to this year’s theme.
From Bethlehem to Greccio will be open on Friday the, 29th and Saturday, the 30th of December, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.
