St. Gabriel’s continued our great tradition of having our children’s play not on Christmas Eve, but on the next Sunday- this year January 2nd. Our play was “A Gift from St. Francis” about the first creche with live animals in 1228 based on the children’s book by Joanna Cole. We had live music and children, youth, adults, and dogs in the cast! Deacon Greg and Father Everett reprised their St. Francis and The Wolf roles from St. Francis Day, and Canon Linda played our dove. We had great narrators, actors, and musicians. Thank you to everyone who participated- it was absolutely wonderful!

To view the play on YouTube, please go here and start at 20:46.
