Wisdom House to Present Program about Neapolitan Crèche

This famous Neapolitan Crèche at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City was given to the museum by Loretta Hines Howard. Some years earlier,  Mrs. Howard also gifted the Abbey of Regina Laudis with a similar crèche, which is on permanent exhibit at the Abbey in Bethlehem, Connecticut.

On Saturday, December 4, from 9:30 a.m. until- 3:30 p.m., Wisdom House will present  a program about this crèche. Mother Cecilia Schullo, OSB and Sister Angèle Arbib, OSB, will speak about the history and spirituality of the crèche.   After lunch, participants  in the program  will drive to the Abbey to see the  creche, where it is on exhibit in the Bellamy Barn.  For more information visit out Web site.
