Crib donated for Bambinelli Sunday

Chris and Sarah McTigue from McTigue Funeral Directors, an Independent in West Yorkshire, got into the Christmas spirit by donating a crib set to St Mary Magdalene’s in Altofts.

Father David Teasdel, the local parish priest, said: “As a church we have a close working relationship with our local funeral directors, and as a result a number of them have been very generous to us. We were delighted when Chris approached us asking if he could donate a crib.

“Our existing crib set comprised of a statue of Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus and the new set includes shepherds, wise men, and various animals. When we celebrated Bambinelli Sunday and our congregation brought their baby crib figures to church for blessing, we were able to bless our new crib set.

“We are very grateful to Chris and Sarah for their kindness and generosity and it is heartening to see a local family business so committed to being embedded within the life of the community – their community care and concern is quite literally cradle to grave.”
