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.
