The Macau Catholic Culture Association wants the Christmas manger to become a familiar presence in the homes of local Catholics. The organization has launched a competition to choose Macau’s most beautiful Nativity scenes. The association is also selling a 12-day Advent Calendar that allows for the creation of a complete Christmas crèche.
The “Celebrating Families – Inter-School Nativity Decoration Contest 2021” has been continuously organized for 4 years and this year 11 Catholic schools participated in the contest.
The Macau Cardinal Newman Center of Cultural and Performance Arts and the Macau Diocesan of Performance Arts and Culture Association organized, for the third year in a row, a contest where everyone had a chance to vote for the most beautiful Nativity scene set up by Macau’s Catholic schools. There was also a contest involving parish churches. Eleven educational institutions joined the competition. The contestants used different materials to recreate the narrative of the birth of Christ.
