Christmas Eve afternoon saw people gathering for the Ordinariate Crib Service. With lights low, Fr Neil began to re-tell the story of the first Christmas. Children (and some brave adults) had come dressed as different characters. Angels, big and small, Mary, Joseph (press-ganged at the last moment), shepherds, a star, innkeeper, Wise man and assorted animals (bear, sheep, pig and panda were all seen in the stable at some point) all took their places to build the story.
