The first ever Saint Mary and Saint Michael Nativity Festival is being offered as a gift to the Hollidaysburg parish communities including all in the surrounding community area.

This festival encourages attendees to reflect on the humble birth and life of Jesus Christ, our Savior, and is a two-day, self-guided, free public event.

It will feature magnificently crafted nativity sets, including the historic nativity sets from both parishes. Loaned by parishioners and friends, these works reflect the culture and perspective of artists around the world.

This amazing event for the whole family includes a free Christmas concert by the Altoona Community Band.

The event will be held in the Saint Mary social hall, 312 Clark Street, Hollidaysburg, on Saturday, December 17 from 3:00-7:00 p.m. and on Sunday, December 18 from 8:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

The free Christmas Concert by the Altoona Community Band will be held in Saint Mary church on December 18 at 3:00 p.m.
