Nativities Exhibit

Help set up the Exhibit

If you would like to volunteer to help, on December 3, 4 and 5, we need volunteers to unpack and set up all the nativities. Additionally, we need hosts to greet our guests. Please click the RSVP button on the home page to sign up

Help Host the Exhibit

The exhibit opens Saturday, December 7 and runs through December 15. We need teams of two for two-hour shifts to be on hand to greet visitors and take admission for this popular community event.

Help Pack it all away again

Please sign up to help pack them all back up again on either December 16 or 17. Packing up goes much faster than the set up!

More about the Exhibit

1 Saviour, 2 Stories, 300+ Nativities

Advent at Epiphany means that once again we welcome the community to our exhibit of 300+ Nativities. Most of the collection was bequeathed by Dr. William Lemonds in loving memory of James Lattimer Anderson Belcher in 1995. Other nativities have been given by parishioners and friends of the parish over the years.

Our former Rector the Rev. Claiborne Jones along with Epiphanite Laura Keys designed the exhibit telling the stories of Jesus’ birth from the Matthew and Luke. In our narthex are 23 nativities are arranged to illustrate the birth story in Luke and in our gallery, 35 nativities are arranged to illustrate the birth story in Matthew. Each scene is accompanied by scripture and hymn texts. In Jones Hall are all the other nativities.

The visitors who come to view our collection each Advent season enjoy a special experience. The nativities are from all around the world, in every size from that of a chicken’s egg to 3-feet-tall, some are elegant, some of well, a bit kitschy, but all of them are wonderful.

If you have never been a part of this event, come find out what a delightful way it is to begin the Advent/Christmas Season!
