Live Nativity at Saint Francis Medical Center

Complete with camels, livestock, angels and an actual 4-month-old baby, Saint Francis Healthcare System went all out staging a live nativity scene Friday, Dec. 20, 2019, at Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau. Vice President of Foundation and Marketing Jimmy Wilferth said the nativity was inspired by the medical center's namesake, St. Francis of Assisi, who invented what would become the modern nativity in 1223.
