Merry Christmas to all!

The story behind the creation of the crêche at the Cathedral

The congregation of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity gather around the unique crêche or nativity scene made by Minum Blair, who can be seen in this photo directly above the “humpty-backed” camel. Everyone gathered around and joined in the singing of “Silent Night.”

We wanted a really special photo for the front page of the last issue of the QCT before the holidays, so we contacted the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in late November to see if our photographer Jay Ouellet could take a photo of their charming crêche or nativity scene. We learned that it would be set up during the annual Christmas pageant on the morning of Sunday, Dec. 17.
