Keep Christ in Christmas-Lighting the Manger

Keep Christ in Christmas-Lighting the Manger


Council: 680 - MILLINOCKET

Project Description:

On December 1st, 2020, 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 dictated 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 cumulating in 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.
