Joy to the World Nativity Display, Kirkwood, MO

The Franciscan Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Help invite you to experience the Incarnation of the Word made flesh through a Christmas tradition inspired centuries ago by St. Francis of Assisi. Bring family and friends to share in viewing dozens of unique nativity sets from various cultures, artisans and collectors on display at our Tau Center in Kirkwood. This year, the display will also feature a large Fontanini village.

Be sure to stop by to experience this joy of the Christmas season on:
– Thur or Fri, Dec 9-10 – between Noon & 6pm
– Sat or Sun, Dec 11-12 – between 10am & 4pm

Tau Center is located in Kirkwood, Missouri, at 335 S Kirkwood Rd (behind PNC Bank and Andy’s Frozen Custard on Kirkwood Rd, and between Kindercare and the American Legion Hall on South Clay).

Admission is free, and there is no need to register unless arriving in a large group — in that case, please call to schedule a viewing. Masks are required. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Please enter through the main door under the covered porch.

We do have handicapped parking and an accessible entrance at the Southwest corner of the building, but that door stays locked. Upon arrival, we ask that you call (314) 965-3700 from the parking lot so we can unlock the door and welcome you!
