Life-Size Nativity and Christmas Tree To Be Unveiled in Grand Army Plaza

The Diocese of Brooklyn, with the assistance of the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, put up a 25-foot Christmas tree and installed a life-size, hand-painted Nativity at the Grand Army Plaza Arch in Brooklyn, Dec. 9.

Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio will bless the crèche during an interfaith ceremony on Tuesday, Dec. 20 at 5:30 p.m. The event will include a performance by Charlie Poveromo and caroling by students from a Catholic school. All are welcome to attend.

The tree and Nativity’s placement are made possible by DeSales Media Group, the communications and technology arm of the diocese.
