From December 2023 to February 2024…

on December 2, 2023, after almost 5 months of work, theChristmas nativity scene at the Chapelle de Saint-Maclou found its place on the north altar, that of the Assumption.
A unique design and model, which we hope will attract many visitors with its originality!
Then, February comes, it will return to its boxes, before shining again in December 2024!

Exclusively, the first sketch of what our future Christmas nativity scene will be.
The characters (Joseph, Marie, the shepherd, Balthazar, Gaspard and Melchior) will be approximately 30 cm high, the camel 35 cm, the donkey and the ox 20 cm and the stable 45 cm.
Having the chance to have some talents within our association, we are creating this crèche ourselves which will be unique,
and well representative of the state of mind that drives us.
The All the elements will be made of Medium with a thickness of 12 mm and the base in 25 mm.
The different shapes will be cut out, then painted like Santons de Provence.
At the beginning of December, this nativity scene will be installed on the north altar of the Chapel.
It will be for young and old, the pretext for events, visits, multiple meetings.
We will then have the pleasure of welcoming you and the opportunity to highlight our chapel during these upcoming Christmas holidays.
As our work progresses, we will publish the different stages.
