Living Nativity at the Grotto December 6: CANCELLED

Due to the rising number of cases of COVID in our state, after discussing the options with the planning team, it was decided to cancel this year’s Living Nativity. We regret that we have to do this, but, out of concern for health of the young people in the cast and the health of the public who would come to this event, we thought it better to cancel it for this year.

Have a safe and blessed holiday season.

DIRECTIONS

Come to a place in the wooded hills of northwest Connecticut,
under a canopy of trees,
by a stream of flowing water,
to a place of peace and prayer,
dedicated to Mary, the mother of Jesus.
