The Nativity Crib is assembled each year to cover a period of approximately 3 weeks over the Christmas period. When the church is not open access can be arranged by telephoning 023 9282 2166.
The crib was acquired in the early 1950's to commemorate the War dead of the parish for World War 1 and World War 2. It is assembled in the Lady Chapel when the church is decorated by the parishioners for Christmas. The rest of the year it is kept in storage.
