Springfield Illinois Nativity Scene Committee Needs Your Support!

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.
