Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Kathleen Murphy shares a Bambinelli Sunday photo from St. Francis of Assisi School, Greenwood, MS.
We’re sending this picture of my class with their handmade Baby Jesus in a manger before the Third Week of Advent is over!
We learned that the Pope invites the children to join him on Bambinelli
Sunday each Advent. Young people are asked to bring their family’s figure of the Baby Jesus to be blessed by the Holy Father. Our students brought/made
figures which were blessed at our school Mass. Parish families are invited to bring their figurines on Sunday for the same blessing.
