2018 Children’s Pageant


The St. James Christmas Pageant will be part of the 2:30 Christmas Eve service

The 2:30 Service is a joyous Rite II service where our Christmas lessons will be read by some of our older youngsters, and at the same time be brought to life by our younger children in costume. The pageant is followed by the celebration of Holy Communion.

All children, three years old through fifth grade, are invited to participate in the pageant.

If your child would like to be part of the Christmas Pageant, please meet in the Parish Hall Parlor at 2:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve where costumes will be assigned for a REHEARSAL FREE pageant!

The costumes will be assigned as follows:

  • Three and four-year-olds will be stars
  • Kindergartners through third graders will be manger animals, angels, or shepherds
  • Fourth and fifth graders will be wise men/women.

If you have a fifth grader who would like to be Mary or Joseph please email Mary Boutwell, or text Mary no later than Sunday, December 9. Mary and Joseph will be selected by lottery.

The church will open at 1:30 p.m. Our professionally staffed nursery will open at 1:45 for this service.
