Nativitey Sets From Around the World and Country

Last week I took a trip to Mepkin Abbey in Monks Corner, South Carolina with members of St Joseph's Church to view the 93 Nativity Sets from around the World and Country.

Here is just a few of the 94 that are on display at the Abbey.  Every year there are different creches.  It was well worth the trip and a must see for everyone.
