In partnership with The National Christmas Center in Paradise, PA.

 

Holy Trinity Church is hosting a special event for the whole community on December 9th and 10th. Manger Mania is an exhibition of all types of nativity scenes from the traditional and historic to the contemporary and whimsical. Nativity scenes are very popular as they portray the birth of Christ in the crèche surrounded by Mary and Joseph, animals, shepherds, angels, and wise men. These scenes adorn many of our homes at Christmas time and remind us of the core message of the season that God became human in Jesus bringing forth peace and love.

 

Manger scenes came down to us through history from St. Francis of Assisi. The parishioners of Holy Trinity will display their cherished crèche scenes, some generations old. Also there will be a display of historic manger scenes from The National Christmas Center in Paradise, PA. These nativity scenes have been collected from around the world and represent national, regional, and local culture.

 

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Manger Mania will be located in the Parish Hall of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 839 Haddon Ave., Collingswood on Friday, December 9, 6:30PM – 8:30PM and Saturday, December 10th 2PM – 8PM. The event will conclude with the blessing of the Church’s outdoor manger, lighting of the Christmas tree, and caroling at 7:00PM. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served. For further information please call the Church 856-858-0491.
