Sunday Dec 03
Retreat / Pilgrimage
Christmas nativity scenes crafted by artists in Mexico will be on display in six Notre Dame campus buildings Nov. 29 through Jan. 28. The fourth annual International Crèche Exhibit and Pilgrimage features 32 crèches on loan from the Marian Library at the University of Dayton. The exhibit is sponsored by the McGrath Institute for Church Life.
A prayerful pilgrimage to view the crèches will be held Sunday, Dec. 3. Prayer, Scripture readings and song will be led in English and Spanish. The event begins at 2 p.m. with a brief presentation by David Lantigua, assistant professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame, and an activity for children at the Eck Visitors Center.
The pilgrimage will move from the Eck Visitors Center through campus to the other displays and end at the Main Building. Pilgrims are invited to bring the baby Jesus from their home crèche for a blessing. All are welcome.
