St. George Choir to Sing Again at Daley Center Plaza Nativity Scene!

Please join us Saturday, November 24th, in Chicago’s Daley Center Plaza at the intersection Dearborn and Washington Street, when will again erect our life-size Nativity Scene. Construction will begin roughly 9AM, and the God Squad in action is still a sight to behold. There will be a rededication ceremony that will begin at around 10:15AM.

This year we are excited to announce that we will once again have the great fortune of having musical accompaniment from St. George Parish in Tinley Park. The beautiful and harmonious voices of St. George’s choir anchored by Tom Cetera will lead our traditional Christmas music and caroling. We are also looking forward to a blessing from Fr. Stephen Lesniewski of Santiago de Compostela Catholic Church in Lake Forest, CA. After a blessing, children will be able to get an up-close view inside the crèche with photo opportunities available for parents. If you are unable to make it down for the rededication ceremony, please try and visit our nativity scene before December 29th, when we must take it down. If possible, make sure to bring your children or grandchildren to visit this beautiful display. Any additional information, photos, as well as the history of our Nativity Scene can be found at www.chicagonativityscene.com.

As always, there are considerable yearly expenses involved in erecting and maintaining our Nativity Scene. Any donation you would care to make to help offset these expenses would help and be much appreciated. Checks may be sent to the Nativity Scene Committee at the address below. Your past generosity has been of great help and sincerely appreciated. Your support of the display will help remind our fellow Chicagoland residents that the birth of Christ is the true reason for hope and joy during Christmas!

May the Christ Child bless you and your loved ones this Christmas now and always,

The Nativity Scene Committee

If you’d like to make a monetary contribution to help offset expenses, donations can be mailed to:
