The Living Nativity at the Lourdes Shrine in Litchfield on Sunday was once again a special celebration of the birth of Jesus.

Students from Litchfield's schools performed in the show that was choreographed by JoJo Moore and Colette Boyd. The stars were Litchfield High School seniors Sarah McCarthy as Mary and Thomas Wilson as Joseph. Baby Jesus was played by Moore's granddaughter, six-month-old Anna Moore of West Hartford.

Litchfield High's chorus under the direction of Peter Perkins performed songs for the occasion.
