November 29, 2018: Christmas Story Returns to St Martin’s;
The Nativity as it’s meant to be shared.
Story and photo by Sharron Hanna.
A real donkey and several of his animal pals will be front and centre once again in a live depiction of the Nativity story set to take place on the grounds of St Martin’s Anglican Church Sunday, December 9th between 2 and 4 pm. The church is located in the Carlingwood area at 2120 Prince Charles Road where it meets Lockhart Avenue.
With St Martins’ located in a neighbourhood brimming with young families, and a good cross section of residents at the grandparenting stage of life, it is the hope of event organizer, Fiona Hills, that folks throughout the neighbourhood will come and enjoy a rendition of the nativity story that invokes the true spirit of Christmas.
Of course with proceedings being held out of doors in typical Canadian weather for this time of year – read snow and below zero temperatures – there’ll be hot chocolate and cookies at hand to match the warmth of the nativity story being shared by the young people enrolled in St Martin’s Cross Training program.
Admission is free. All are welcome. Free will donations gratefully appreciated.
