Children’s Nativity Pageant

Saturday, December 16 following the 5 p.m. Mass

St. Gianna Circle Mothers Ministry invites all Saint Matthew children in grades K-6 to participate in the Children’s Nativity Pageant. This will be a retelling of the Christmas story made up of a cast entirely of children from our parish and school community. The pageant will take place on Saturday, December 16 following the 5 p.m. Mass.

Several roles will be available in the pageant, including speaking roles (for children in grades 3-6; no memorization required), singing roles, standing-only roles, and greeters.

The first reading of the script will take place on Monday, November 13 at 4 p.m. (children interested in a speaking role must attend the first reading). Roles will be assigned after the first reading. We will have two more practices with the entire cast and one additional practice for the speaking roles only.
