Pictures at the Manger

Our annual Baby Jesus Party, held at our Pauline Books & Media Centers across the USA and English-speaking Canada, has been a cherished family tradition for decades. Although we can't resume all the traditional activities of our Baby Jesus Party just yet, we are excited to welcome you back this year for pictures at the manger, treat bags for your family, and more!

To ensure a safe and fun experience for all families and help reduce crowds this year, please register your family in advance for a time to have your picture taken at the manger scene. Nativity costumes will not be provided this year (but we invite you to bring your own!)

Your registration includes:

  • A time slot for picture-taking by the manger
  • Christmas treats for you and your family
  • A special gift for kids
  • Prayer time in our Blessed Sacrament Chapel
  • An invitation to receive updates about our 2021 Virtual Christmas Concert livestream event

Reserve your photo time!

Register your family below by choosing a time for picture-taking at our manger scene. Please plan to arrive five minutes before your scheduled time to help ensure every family has time at the manger. Nativity costumes will not be provided this year due to COVID, but we invite you to bring your own!
