Église Saint-Louis en l'Île - la crèche

Je vous annonce une grande joie

Église Saint-Louis en l'Île

 This church with first construction in 1642 is an active parish with many events.  Although much of the church was dark, the nativity scene had been well-attended and flooded in light.

This is the same church where Peter, David and I saw the donkey on Palm Sunday in April.

I think that I have been quite taken with the variety of nativity scenes in Paris from the very simple to the elaborate. Each church I visited has its own way of celebrating and the crèche is unique to that particular church.

I loved the lights and the banner in this scene.

Just one more day which I intend to spend enjoying my family and close friends. Wishing each of you a joyous holiday.
