Lourdes Shrine in Litchfield was in full Christmas spirit
on Sunday as it hosted its annual Living Nativity.

Students from Litchfield's schools were the centerpieces
of the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
Mary and Joseph were played by Ali O'Neill and Jonathan Dieck,
 while baby Jesus was portrayed by Bohdi Knierem, son of
Litchfield High graduate Michele (Simaitis) Knierem of Granby.

Litchfield High's Chamber Choir performed several songs under the
direction of Peter Perkins. The Living Nativity was once again organized
by the dynamic duo of Collette Boyd and JoJo Moore. Boyd and Moore
even managed to get some snow flurries to fall during the celebration.
