The Christmas Story by Saint Luke
This year, our Christmas celebration at St. Peter Church will include a virtual Christmas pageant “The Christmas Story by Saint Luke.” All families are invited to participate, and the video will be shared on Christmas Eve via our parish website, Facebook page, and Flocknote.
How will the virtual Christmas pageant work?
- We’ve taken our Christmas story read at the Christmas Eve Family Mass and broken it down into scenes.
- Each scene will be depicted by a photo.
- Families may sign up to take a still photo of their favorite scene.
- We will put the still photos together with a voice-over narration of the Christmas story from Saint Luke.
Instructions for taking photos:
- All parts can be adults, teens or children (boys or girls).
- You are welcome to be creative with costumes and props. You may take your photo inside or outside.
- If you would like to include animals in your photo, you may have a person dressed as that animal, or use live animals.
- If you sign up for a picture with baby Jesus in it, you can use a live baby or you may use a doll.
- It’s okay for multiple families to sign up for the same scene. (We are happy to have multiple photos of the Holy Family, or multiple photos of Shepherds, etc.)
- Take your photo in landscape. (Turn camera horizontally.)
- Upload your photo to the google drive here by December 13th.https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1BNjI4k23yW6TJ_uv_Mfv6aOIWVvB48dR?usp=sharing
