Christmas nativity scenes recreated by cultures from around the world are on display in six Notre Dame campus buildings through Jan. 31, 2017. The third annual International Crèche Exhibit and Pilgrimage features 30 crèches on loan from the Marian Library at the University of Dayton. The exhibit is sponsored by the McGrath Institute for Church Life.
A prayerful pilgrimage to view the crèches will be held Sunday, Dec. 4. The event begins at 2 p.m. with a brief presentation by John Cavadini, professor of theology and McGrath-Cavadini Director of the McGrath Institute for Church Life, and an activity for children at the Eck Visitors Center. The pilgrimage will move from the Eck Visitors Center through campus to the other displays and end at the Main Building. Pilgrims are invited to bring the baby Jesus from their home crèche for a blessing. All are welcome.
