Every year, the first-year seminarians at the International Seminary of St. Philip Neri build from scratch the Nativity scene. This is a enormous project which requires a day's worth of labor from over 20 seminarians, guided by their prefect, Canon Louis Poucin de Wouilt.

This year, the seminary published for the first time a time-lapse video showing the construction of the crèche.
Come watch these seminarians hard at work building a worthy dwelling place for the Infant Jesus!
