Cribbs not just for Christmas!  Bethlehem will come to Ilford High Road this Christmas. Ss Peter & Paul’s Catholic Church had some difficulty trying to source sheep and cattle for a live crib until Cribb Funeral Directors from Canning Town came to the rescue with their farm animals. Live cribs (“Presepe Vivente” in Italian) are a tradition going back to 1223 when St Francis of Assisi re-enacted the Christmas story with villagers and animals in Greccio, central Italy. The forecourt of Ss Peter & Paul is a little different to the Lazio-Umbrian countryside but we hope that the atmosphere will be as dramatic and equally prayerful. The Christmas story will be enacted live, with participative carol singing, at 4 p.m. on Saturday 22nd December and streamed live via the parish website: www.ssppilford.org.uk

Live Crib will be viewable in the window below.
