More than 50 children and their families joined Adelaide Cathedral parishioners for the annual Blessing of the Cribs Mass on Sunday December 3. The children took their cribs to the altar for a special blessing by Fr Charles Gauci. The annual tradition also involves decorating the Jesse tree in St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral. This year St Aloysius College Year 1 students were involved in creating the decorations. Mass centres around the State also conducted their own blessing of the cribs for local children.
