Although the Birth was a private event, witnessed only by the animals who shared their shelter, word soon spread bringing visitors of all sorts. Depictions of the Birth are often populated with an interesting variety of people and animals and these add color to the story. This year we will feature many of these visitors and learn what their presence revealed about the Christmas celebration over time. Please join us for this year’s display and programs. We are delighted to open our grounds this season and to celebrate this beloved season. Call for specific hours or to arrange a program.
Admission is free – Our Christmas gift to you! We look forward to your attendance and support ~ donations are always appreciated. School groups, prayer groups, families & individuals are all welcome. Call in advance for scheduling and price quotes for docent tours or field trips. Bring your staff, office party, family or prayer group for a holiday meal surrounded by the lights of the Christmas season. For health and safety, we will be honoring LA County Requirements & Archdiocese Health Guidelines. For more information call at (310) 377-4867 ext. 221 or email Sydne at .
