Crèches on display at Archabbey Library
ST. MEINRAD – An exhibit of Christmas crèches from around the world will be on display in the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library through Jan. 10.
The display features crèches from the monastery collection, as well as from the Catherine A. Smith Nativity Collection, which was donated to Saint Meinrad in 2002 in memory of Charles Patrick “Pat” Smith.
