Invite a friend
8th Annual Crèche Display
The Sisters of St. Francis of the Providence of God invite everyone to take a moment to stop, relax and reflect upon the true meaning of Christmas at their 8th Annual Crèche Display. Over 280 crèches and nativity scenes will be on display in the Sisters' lecture hall. Many are loaned to the community from Sisters' friends and family. Booklets with a brief description of each crèche will be given to attendees. Church, school and other organizational groups are welcome.
More About Sisters of St. Francis of the Providence of God
To say that there is a lot happening at the Sisters of St. Francis of the Providence of God campus would be a massive understatement. This "order of women religious" is composed of very busy women, as their sprawling grounds host The Franciscan Spirit and Life Center, the Franciscan Child Day Care Center, three hermitages and the Franciscan Townhomes, to name just a few things. The campus is technically divided into two main locations just feet from each other: 3603 McRoberts Rd. and 1401 Hamilton Road, both on the edge of the Borough of Whitehall. Also on the grounds are the Mary Immaculate Chapel, numerous study rooms, a gymnasium, living quarters for the sisters and the Episcopal Vicar-Region Two office of the Diocese of Pittsburgh. The Early Learning Institute also rents space on campus. Mass is offered every day, but interested goers should contact the organization ahead of schedule to ensure Mass times. Prior contact with the organization for all schedules is encouraged. Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of the organization, which makes its U.S. home at this location.
