Light a Christmas Crib Candle

For the forty days from Christmas night to Candlemas on February 2, the focal point for the decoration of a Catholic church is the Christmas crib.

We are happy to say that we have not one, but two Nativity scenes set up in St. Gertrude the Great Church every year for this joyous season, one in the sanctuary and another behind the altar in a side chapel where daily Masses are regularly offered. (Click on images to enlarge.)

During the Christmas season, we can light a seven-day candle before the Christmas crib for your intentions.

The customary offering is $7 per candle.
