Blessing of Christmas Crib in Newbridge

As you may have read in Newbridge Parish News & Views magazine, a small committee has been formed to revive the tradition of having a Christmas crib at the Town Hall.

This is happening with the cooperation of Newbridge Christmas Lights Committee. The lights will be switched on at 4.30/5.00 p.m. on Sunday 2 December after which the crib will be unveiled and blessed.

Each Primary School in the area is requested to invite pupils to contribute a written story of the first Christmas/artwork/drawings/birthday cards/stars or any other appropriate way of illustrating the meaning of Christmas to them.

The committee has asked that any children who wish to contribute to please attend by 3.45 p.m. following which they will be welcome to present their work.  Any such items will then be enclosed in a folder which will be displayed at the crib.
