Christmas Pageant

If you have never experienced Saint Mark’s Christmas Pageant before you are in for a treat!

One of the things that makes it so special is that it is a very simple script with only a few reading parts (and no lines to memorize!) so that children can have fun dressing up and acting out the nativity without feeling pressure to perform. There are no auditions and there are roles for everyone who would like to participate, including those who may be in from out of town or visiting Saint Mark’s for the first time.

We always have lots of room for all children to join!

Children do not need to have attended rehearsal to participate on Christmas Eve, but you do need to place your child’s name on the signup roster and (because the pageant is livesteamed) sign a media release using the online signup.

Children of all ages are welcome to participate!

.Music is performed by Saint Mark’s Children’s Canterbury Choir.
