About this event

Written and designed by Paul Mesner, the Nativity will return once again to Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral December 2nd through 4th, 2022. This celebrated annual spectacle comes alive with larger than life, seven-foot puppets and live voices, singers, and musicians for this classic enactment.

People of all ages will be in awe as the story unfolds around the audience in the beautiful stone and gothic style Cathedral built in 1894. It is truly breathtaking! A cast of over 40 bring these extraordinary characters to life engaging the audience in the glorious telling of the Christmas story with a strong visual and emotional impact. The audience experiences the triumph of good over evil in this epic tale!

The show lasts about an hour, and is enjoyed by all ages. Parking is free at the Cathedral, but spaces are limited.
