Building our Nativity Scene…

At the initiative of the Feather family, the southwest corner of St. Peter’s is now decorated by a beautiful nativity scene that can be enjoyed 24 hours a day.

Led by Vernon Feather, the life-sized figures and stable were cut from 3/4-inch plywood according to a template and painted white in the Smith Fellowship Hall during the early weeks of December. The nativity scene was installed in two hours on Sunday December 20 with a crew of 9 led by Vernon and Jim Dallas, supervised by artistic directors Sherry Ma and Clem Young, and with the encouragement of Father Sam, who suffered a mild ankle sprain on the slippery hill.
