Send in Your Nativity Scene Photos

FCC News Desk

In 2019, Pope Francis issued an apostolic letter, Admirabile signum, on the meaning and importance of nativity scenes, calling for this “wonderful sign” to be more widely displayed in family homes and public places throughout the world.

For the last two years, in response, we asked parishioners, ministries, offices, churches, and schools to send us a picture of the nativity scene on display at their location.

The response to this request was tremendous.

Once again, we are asking for pictures of your creche.

The photos will be featured in a photo gallery on the NorwichDiocese.org/Advent webpage, along with other Advent resources.

Please name your photo with your family name or organization and the location of the Christmas crèche. Send as a jpeg to editorial@norwichdiocese.net, using the highest resolution. On an iPhone that would be “Actual Size.”

Click here or on the photo to be taken directly to the gallery.

Let His Love Shine Through What You Do - Colleen Puscas

One Sunday morning, after moving there, the family was running late preparing their four children for church, so they ended up attending a later Mass, 11 a.m. at St. Andrew Church. That was the first time Colleen heard the choir sing for Mass, and al...

Pilgrimage to the Passion Play of Oberammegau
After waiting three years to see Eastern Europe, our journey began with the announcement of a pilots’ strike by Lufthansa, our designated airline carrier to Prague, the capitol of the Czech Republic. With some creative re-arrangements, our travel agent divided the 29 of us into groups, sending some to Amsterdam via KLM and some to Warsaw via LOT Airlines.  With amazement, we all were together at our hotel in Prague by evening the following day; with Fr. Mark arriving on the last flight! We were blessed to have four priests on our Pilgrimage: our host ...

Sign Our Petition Recently, a disturbing video laced with anti-Catholic sentiments emerged out of Greenwich, CT. It serves as a warning sign that our culture is heading backward instead of forward on religious tolerance. In the video, a public elementary school assistant principal in Greenwich says that he does not hire Catholics because they may be too conservative in their beliefs. They may have been "brainwashed" by their church....
