2021 Concordia at Cabot Live Nativity Celebrates the True Meaning of Christmas

December 14, 2021

Our Concordia at Cabot campus welcomed community members, friends and families on Sunday to enjoy the eighth annual Concordia Live Nativity! A mild winter day set the perfect backdrop for our attendees to experience the birth of our Savior.

Live Nativity Social CollageHomemade luminaries shined bright and guided our guests to baby Jesus’s humble beginning. The beautiful and eye-catching display of lights were made possible with the help of the St. Luke Lutheran Church Youth Group, Rev. Brian Bocian and Jason, Tammy and Aleah Young – many thanks for their gracious donation of time, assistance and development of this special project.  

Three outdoor performances portrayed the birth of Jesus and between each show our guests were treated to Christmas cookies, hot chocolate and some great musical entertainment. Special thanks to St. Luke Lutheran School 3rd and 4th graders and the Tri-Parish Holiday Choir for playing, singing and leading our guests in Christmas carols.

The event included Concordia residents and staff members contributing in many ways: narrating, decorating and set-up, greeting guests, singing, acting and more! Special thanks to the Saxonburg Fire Police for traffic control, and our AMAZING residents, staff and community members who made this another wonderful event. Also, a big thank you to our cast:
