St. Margaret's Shrine
Bridgeport, CT

As you know BACIO directly or indirectly raised all the money to create and make the Presepio a reality. In a sense our commitment has been fulfilled. However, it is difficult to "walk away" from it when the most important idea is to assure that the Presepio is seen by as many people as possible especially during the Christmas season. With that in mind I am asking you to volunteer some hours to "manning" the Presepio during the hours it is opened to the public.

Those hours are:
Monday thru Friday - 11 AM to 3 PM
Saturday - 3 to 6 PM
Sunday - 9 AM to 12:30 PM

Obviously there will be hours that may not attract viewers. Perhaps that would be a blessing as you make use of the quiet to meditate about Advent and your relation with the Father. Please let Len know if you are willing to help.
