Seminarian Luis Lopez of the Diocese of Oakland, arranged the creche (shown above) on a shelf in the library's main reading room. The creche was made in the northern El Salvador village of La Palma. This town is famous because during the Civil War, the first peace dialogue took place there. La Palma is also recognized around the world for its colorful native pinewood crafts. During this Advent season, we invite you to recognize Jesus' presence among the poor.
