For two nights this Advent Season, with the help of props, sets, and costumed parishioners, our halls will once again be transformed into the town of Bethlehem. Holy Trinity will invite our local community to walk through the town streets and make its way to the Holy Family. Our hope is that through this unique commemoration of the nativity of our Blessed Lord, we will all be reminded of the true Gift of Christmas. Jesus clothes himself in human skin and the innocence of an infant, and beckons us to Him. We may never fully realize the wonder of this miraculous gift this side of heaven, but during Advent, we hope to share this true meaning of Christmas. We invite you to shake the dust off your sandals and leave the chaos and noise of the 21st century and walk the streets of Bethlehem in anticipation of that special night that changed humanity forever.
As we transform Holy Trinity into a living Bethlehem, we want you to be an integral part of this special event. We are collecting monetary donations as well as household items like old sheets, baskets, artificial trees, and fabric. We’re looking for bakers, actors, greeters, and parishioners who will wrap this special intention in prayer. We also need live farm animals and pet rabbits that enjoy interacting with children. Finally, if you have had a baby since the middle of August or are expecting an arrival in the next 2 months, we would love to speak with you! No act is too small. Christmas is coming…Christ is coming, and this gift is ours to share. Join us! Contact Margi Loesel at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!
