Mary (Natalia Miasek) holds Baby Jesus (3-month-old Brennan O’Reilly) as Joseph (Matt Ahlman) looks on lovingly.
The angel behind Joseph is Ellie Ercoli. Holding the candle is Abby Fragione, standing next to Elizabeth Maryanski. The shepherd to Elizabeth’s left is Julia Traub.
The living crèche was one of many stops along a walking route that included the lighting of two Christmas trees, a preview of the Nutmeg Ballet’s "Nutcracker" and the lighting of the "Christmas House" on Main Street. (Photo by Jack Sheedy)
