At church in R. A. Puram, a giant crib is being set up

Two churches in the neighbourhood put up impressive cribs which recreate the scene of the birth of Christ, celebrated as Christmas.

One is at the San Thome Cathedral and the other at Our Lady of Guidance Church in R A Puram.

The past days, a small team of people have been busy building a giant crib on the stage inside the R A Puram church on Lazarus Church Road.  They are using large size statues and also using lighting to bring the crib alive.

The crib will be formally opened at the Christmas eve Mass here. It is open to the public.
