Live Nativity, church-to-church caroling to follow candle-lighting circle on Luminaries night

The candle-lighting circle that begins Luminaries, the Angelica community Christmas celebration, will take place in Park Circle on Sunday, December 17 at 5:00 p.m. As they have for many years, the Booster Citizens will ring the circle with the traditional luminary candles. People will gather near the two Christmas trees at the east end of the park, and will pass the light by touching one candle to the next. The singing of a few favorite carols then will fill the night air.

The group next will move to the Methodist Church where a live Nativity scene will be presented on the front lawn of the parsonage. The program continues with a church-to-church procession, going into the Methodist Church, the Works of Divine Mercy mission, St. Paul’s Episcopal, and First Baptist, with a pause at each church to place the baby Jesus in the creche.

All are invited to take part in this joyous celebration. The even concludes with refreshments at the First Baptist Church and announcement of winners in the holiday decoration contest.
