St Johns Christmas

St Johns Christmas 4

St Johns Christmas 2

The Glandorf St. John Nativity — or "Krippe" — has been on display at the church every Christmas for the past 125 years. Purchased in 1889 for $350, the Nativity is truly a work of art. Walpouer and Mahlknekt of St. Ulrich in Groeden in the Austrian Tirol carved the statues of linden and pine. The statues were then hand painted and gilded. The animals that brought the three Magi represent the known continents of Jesus’ time: a horse (Europe), an elephant (Asia) and a camel (Africa). The drop cloth was fashioned by the Sisters of the Precious Blood.

Advent by candlelight

The inaugural “Advent By Candlelight: A Celebration of Preparation and Remembrance” at Toledo Regina Coeli was hosted by, from left, Susan Hertz, Sara McCoy, Lynette McClain, Jan McNichol, Evelyn Horner, Sue Granata, Lisa Bartholomew and Rebecca Kaczmarek. The women’s spirituality program was the first in a series of women’s spirituality and adult formation events. Led by Regina Coeli’s Pastoral Associate, Sara McCoy, school faculty member, Lisa Bartholomew, and seven volunteer table hostesses, the evening offered women the opportunity to take time out of this often busy season for a special moment of fellowship, prayer, reflection and preparation for the coming of Christ.

On a sunny and warm November day, students at Port Clinton Immaculate Conception participated in a lesson about life in their art classes.  Art teacher Joni Hoffman introduced her students in grades three, four and five to artists Henri Matisse and Michael Monaco, both disabled artists and an Iranian woman who painted with her feet. In order to fully appreciate the talents of the artists, the classes went outside, took off a shoe and tried to create art using only their feet.
