Five churches, Emanuel Church (Manchester), First Baptist Church (Manchester by the Sea), First Parish Church Congregational (Manchester by the Sea), Sacred Heart Catholic Church (Manchester), and St. John the Baptist Catholic Church (Essex), are banding together to present an interfaith event “One Night in Bethlehem” on December 22, 2012.
The free event that is billed as a “Hands-On Holy Land Experience” starts at 4:15 PM with a candlelight stroll from the First Parish Church to Sacred Heart Catholic Church. At the Sacred Heart Catholic Church there will be an outdoor live Nativity with live animals that will let you experience what it might have been like for Mary and Joseph the night Jesus was born. There is also an indoor market with traditional food and crafts. The live nativity and indoor market will last from 4:30 to 6:30 PM.
