Pilgrimage to the Manger

December 8, 5:30 pm

donations appreciated

As always we start in the Lodge where we will don head Judean head scarves in order to follow Mary and Joseph on their pilgrimage to the manger. Bring warm coats, mittens, etc., for the walk across the bridge to the farm. The shepherds with their sheep and the Magi on horseback will join us on the pilgrimage. The Rev. Chris Hopkins will lead us in scripture and carols, as we each experience again the Miracle of that first Christmas. It is truly a special night for both children and adults. A free will donation is greatly appreciated. All proceeds support the mission of the Center
