Preparing the Manger | Available in the Gathering Area

Stemming from a French tradition, all are invited to take a bag of straw home. For each good deed or sacrifice you make during Advent, set a piece of straw aside. Then, bring the straw to Christmas Eve Mass to soften the manger for the Christ Child.
