UPDATE: The First Annual Nativity and Tree Lighting event has been moved to Thursday, December 1 at 7 pm.
On Tuesday, November 29, at 7 pm, Holy Family University will host its First Annual Nativity and Tree Lighting on the lawn in front of Holy Family Hall.
Family, friends, and the entire HFU community are welcome to attend this outdoor event. The night will feature holiday music from the Nazareth Academy High School and Grade School and will culminate with the lighting of the Star of Bethlehem, the Nativity, and the Christmas Tree. Admission is free, and light refreshments and pictures with Santa Tiger will be available.
“As a Catholic institution, we knew we wanted to do something to commemorate the holiday season,” said Staci Altomari, Development and Alumni Operations Specialist. “The lighting of the Nativity, Christmas Tree, and the Star of Bethlehem is a great way to bring the holidays to campus. The tree will be decorated in blue and white roses, which tie into our Christmas Rose tradition. These roses have an additional layer of meaning to our campus, as each rose represents a Blue and White fund donor. We’ll be joined by both the Nazareth Academy High School and Grade School, and there will be a visit from Santa Tiger to take photos with all the children. I encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the festivities.”
