Your little Sisters' crib has over 200 figures in 32 scenes taken from Sacred Scripture and Franciscan history - for it was St Francis who introduced the idea of the crib. Our Sisters began work on it back in 1974 and, adding to it annually, drew to a halt in 2014, when they abruptly ran out of space in the sanctuary. The problem is the competition, one very large cathedral style Christmas tree! We keep this video made in conjunction with Bernadette Bevans as a happy memory until we can solve our problem!

If you enjoyed this video, and strictly if it is the right time of the year you might like to visit St Nicholas and the dragon, for the under 80s.
