Virtual Advent and Christmas Crèche Calendar
For the past six years, the McGrath Institute for Church Life has partnered with the Marian Library of Dayton, Ohio, bringing to Notre Dame’s campus an exhibit of crèches, or Nativity scenes, from around the world, and gathering members of the community to pray in procession and prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ.
This year, the coronavirus pandemic prevents hosting the annual exhibit and pilgrimage. Instead, you are invited to reflect on the Incarnation in a virtual Advent and Christmas Crèche Calendar—a beautiful retrospective selection of crèches from the previous six exhibits.
Once you sign up, you will receive a daily email starting on the first Sunday of Advent, November 29, through January 10, 2021, with an image and description of a crèche from a different part of the world, along with a brief prayer that you can offer for yourself and your loved ones.
