Featuring crèches from the Knights of Columbus Museum Inc. Collection, this exhibition honors the rich history of the Nativity scene as seen across the world, from small hand-carved figures made of wood to large-scale representations featuring over 150 figures and elaborate settings.

Included in the exhibition are passages describing the moment in Greccio from Chapter 30 of Thomas de Celano’s 1229 work The Life of Saint Francis, the very first biography of the saint, as well as Chapter 10 of St. Bonaventure’s 1263 work The Life of St. Francis of Assisi.
