As you may know, this year will be the second annual display of the Springfield Nativity Scene. Last year was the first time in Illinois history such a religious display stood in the state capitol. Statues of Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus stood in a handcrafted manger in the Capitol Rotunda Building. The project was originally underwritten by the Chicago-based Thomas More Society and its President Tom Brejcha. The three statues were handcrafted and made in Italy, costing nearly $7,000 and we are still paying the bills for last year’s event and we would like your help.
