Who is that knocking at the door

It's Mary and Joseph, the travelling crib come to visit.  Families at St Thomas More's have been passing the travelling crib during Advent.  Here we see the crib in the Ursuline Convent, where will it go next?  

Advent is a time when we can think about how Mary and Joseph must have felt as they travelled to Bethlehem.

Some families have shared with us what they did when Mary, Joseph and their donkey came to visit.  Marie Worden explained how she created a home in Nazareth out of baking tins and then created a long road for Mary and Joseph to travel along.  This was to help the children understand that it will be some time before they get to Bethlehem when we will celebrate the birth of Jesus.
