Mariapolis Luminosa - 2020 Virtual Nativity Display - Dear friends, This year is different – and the Christmas Season is not exempt. We cannot get together for Christmas parties. We have to carefully discern every family gathering we plan. Also the Nativity Display at Mariapolis Luminosa, a tradition for over 33 years, will have a different format this year. And yet, the message of hope is the same: the meaning of Christmas doesn’t change, and it might be more important this year than ever: even in the darkest times, there’s God’s promise that he will never leave us! Please visit our Virtual Nativity Display (link below) and share this gift with your family and friends. https://youtu.be/hD27EcYrzdE
