Saint Francis Healthcare System to host Live Nativity on December 17

Saint Francis Healthcare System will recreate the scene of Jesus’ birth with its fourth annual outdoor Live Nativity. Come and experience the true reason for the season on Saturday, December 17, from 5-7 pm. Invite your neighbors, friends and family to follow the Star of Bethlehem to the Saint Francis Cancer Institute (Entrance 6) and witness this truly special event.

Stacy Huff, Executive Director of Saint Francis Foundation, said, “This is such a special event. We are honored to follow in St. Francis of Assisi’s footsteps by providing this free visual reminder for our community. Jesus is the core of everything we do at Saint Francis. He is what drives us and the reason we celebrate Christmas.”

Volunteers will take on the roles of Mary, Joseph, wise men, shepherds and angels. The event will feature live animals including cows, camels, four-horn sheep and a donkey. Parking is available near the Cancer Institute.

In case of inclement weather, event status updates can be seen on the Live Nativity webpage or the Saint Francis Healthcare System Facebook page. To learn more about the event, call 573-331-5177.
