The One World Crib by Interfaith North West and The Playhouse

Posted on: 11th December 2012

The official launch of a special ‘One World Crib' will be held this weekend at The Playhouse to coincide with the special Evening of Christmas music in memory of Sister Aloysius.

The Crib, designed by local artists, Joe Connelly, Siuan O'Doherty and Helen Quigley, represents the faiths of the world an honors Christmas for all.

Inter Faith uses dialogue and cooperation to promotes good relations between people of different faiths.

The crib will be launched in The Playhouse plaza during the annual night of festive music and verse, held in memory of Sister Aloysius McVeigh on Sunday December 16.

Colmcille Ladies Choir will be inviting on the stage for the first time the Colmcille juniors, a brand new choir made up of Colmcille children and grandchildren. Celebrated local violinist Niamh McGowan, who has performed with stars such as Lady Gaga, Ronan Keating and Meatloaf will also perform on the night, as will local male group The Columbians, and actor Seamus Ball and Joe Connelly, who will take part in Christmas readings.

Interfaith member Joe Connelly said: "The ‘Magi' represent the faiths of the world following the star of understanding and enlightenment.
"They honour the birth of a great and revolutionary religious teacher whose message is peace and love. So Christmas is for all and no-one is excluded. The crib will be launched in The Playhouse plaza at 7.30pm. All are welcome."
