    The idea is that it is to help remember the journey Mary and Joseph made to Bethlehem and as a family for you to take time to stop and think about the true meaning of Christmas and share this prayer time as a family.

    The crib will be sent home for you to share that evening and return to school the next day.

    We hope you enjoy The Christmas Crib!
