Pictured above: This Nativity scene in Christ the King Chapel was installed by Rev. Fred Betti, SJ, and created by him and his father over the course of 25 years.
It is the Nativity’s fourth home.

Canisius’ faith community celebrated the third Sunday of Advent with the Blessing of the Bambinelli (Baby Jesus).

The beloved tradition began in Rome and invites families to bring the Baby Jesus figurines, from their Nativity scenes, to Mass for a blessing.
