A very special church service was held in Southwick Sunday morning.
Young parishioners and members of the Our Lady of the Lake parish performed a live nativity play inside the church shortly after 10 a.m. Mass Sunday morning.
After the play, everyone was invited outside for cookies, beverages and the chance to check out some animals from Forest Park’s Zoo on the Go. Also featured at the event, live music.
“It’s a fun time for the community and to be able to celebrate Christmas and the holidays and to be able to be happy and rejoice with everyone in our community here,” said Lydia Daniele.
Jars were placed at the entrances and exits of the church for donations to support the zoo animals.
