BRONXVILLE N.Y. - The Reformed Church of Bronxville will hold its 98th annual Christmas Pageant on Dec. 24 at 5:30 p.m.

The pageant will feature Concordia College President Viji George as Joseph, Bronxville High School senior Elena Licursi, as Mary and Caroline Palermo as the Manger Angel, Gabrielle.

The pageant is a significant event for anyone in Bronxville's faith community, said Viji.

"I've been living in this community for over 30 years, and this event has always been an unique way to publicly recognize the significance of the season," said Viji. "This isn't just singing in a mall, it's celebrating the birth of the most influential person in the history of mankind."

Ministers from seven local churches will give readings, and Maryann Palermo will conduct the Invisible Choir, an informal group of singers. Anyone who is interested in joining should arrive a few minutes early and meet at the Cloister area at the top of the hill.

The original Pageant was called “The Bronxville Christmas Mystery,” and was presented at Christ Church to benefit displaced Belgians during World War I.

Plans are already under way for a special centennial celebration in December 2014, the pageant's 100th anniversary. Stories, memories, and photographs of past pageants are being collected, and should be sent to the Bronxville Village Christmas Pageant, P.O. Box 397, Bronxville, NY 10708.

The pageant is fully supported by donations from the local community. If anyone wishes to contribute, donations should be sent to the address above.
