Lighting The Manger
Council: 680 - MILLINOCKET
On December 7th, St. Martin of Tours Council #680 held our annual Lighting of the Manger ceremony. To
comply with COVID mandates, the ceremony was held in the Church instead of the Association Hall because social distancing could be accomplished in the Church but not at the Hall. Mask were required as recommended by the Diocese of Portland. The ceremony was conducted by Brother Francis Megno, our Faith Director. Christmas hymns, a gospel reading, and the construction of the manger ended with the lighting of the manger for display on the porch of the Association Hall. This ceremony is conducted to remind everyone of the reason for the season and to promote the “Keep the Christ in Christmas” initiative.
