AGROUP of laymen-Catholics, Anglican and Free Churchmen -will go this evening (Friday) to a Crib which has been put up in the window or a Leicester store and will there make an act of homage.
The "act" has been carefully planned. The texts will be read by laymen of each denomination and carols will be sung. There will not be a service.
The Crib figures were bought by the Cell movement in Leicester with the help of a grant from the Leicester Council of Churches, a nonCatholic organisation.
Through the co-operation of nonCatholics in the city the cost has been met for 200 double-crown Christmas posters in shops, factories. and outside their churches and chapels.
A large poster is to be placed outside the Town Hall by the city council, which has made arrangements for this to he floodlit each night.
