The Saint Joseph of the Nativity Grande Creche White Series sits in awe and veneration of the Infant Jesus, the central mystery of the Nativity. Fashioned with faith by cloistered nuns in Europe, this Saint Joseph statuette is one of 18 pieces in a truly breath-taking nativity set (crèche). This Saint Joseph, along with the Infant Jesus and Virgin Mary (see below), are the first three pieces to be acquired. After you have these three pieces, you can then begin making your Grande Crèche complete, year by year. One day your Grande Crèche will be complete and ready for display it in its entirety during the Christmas season in your home, workplace, office, or church!
The Grande Crèche (White) – 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 (white), is made from a composite of dolomite stone and resin and then completed by hand in the sisters’ monastic workshop. While in prayer, each sister performs a specific task to bring to completion each and every piece. The Grande Crèche (color) is most eminently “culturally authentic” and a real labor of love, faith, and hope!
The Grande Crèche (white) – An Heirloom Gift for Generation after Generation
The Grande Crèche (white) on display every Christmas season will infuse beauty, serenity, and depth in every place where friends, families, and persons of faith come together to celebrate. In Europe during the Christmas season crèches small and large are prominently displayed in many public places. May your own home, office, workplace, school, and church display a crèche of heirloom-quality, a crèche that bespeaks with theological and artistic honesty the one true “reason for the season”! This Saint Joseph and the rest of the Grande Crèche (white) is a gift of remarkable heirloom quality which will be treasured and displayed for generation after generation!
