EVENT: WWI Chapel Christmas Pageant — “A WWI Christmas Peace” on Sunday, December 16 at 10:30 am.

This year’s annual Chapel Christmas Pageant includes WWI soldiers, angels, shepherds, kings and camels and will take place in the trenches of WWI. Joseph and Mary will lead the audience as the cast sings “Silent Night” in German. The pageant remembers the true stories of soldiers whose company’s declared temporary truces on Christmas Day up and down the battlefields of WWI in Europe, where German soldiers and soldiers of the Allied Forces met in No Man’s Land for Christmas festivities, singing, exchanging gifts, and embracing their common humanity. All ages are welcome to this remembrance of Christmas peace.
The Chapel is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of WWI in 1918. Epiphany Chapel & Church House, as it was originally named in 1918, is the only WWI Chapel in the United States. It has been restored with help from the Maryland Historical Trust and is a National Register site. The Chapel offers a WWI Social History museum, a Chaplains’ Peace Garden naming 2928 WWI Chaplains on bronze plagues, and has recently established the Centennial Memorial Gardens, an outdoor chapel and monument. It is open to the public on Sundays.
