The Grande Crèche (color) – Saint Joseph depicted with Faith, Hope and Love
The Saint Joseph measures 10.6 inches high and, together with the other 17 pieces of the Grande Crèche (color), is fashioned from a composite of dolomite stone and resin which is then completed by hand in the nuns’ monastic workshop in Europe. While in prayer, each nun undertakes a specific assigned task to bring to completion each piece. The Grande Crèche (color) is certainly “culturally authentic” and an incredible labor of love, faith, and hope!

May your own home, office, workplace, church, and school, and church be able to display a crèche of this heirloom-quality, a crèche that bespeaks with theological and artistic integrity the authentic “reason for the season”!
