O little town on Wall St.
Trinity Church celebrated Christmas Eve with a family service of storytelling and songs on the afternoon of Dec. 24. Top, Battery Park City resident Madeleine Lee, 5, dressed as an angel, talked to another child as the Rev. Mark Francisco Bozzuti-Jones told the children about the birth of Jesus. Far right, a “living crèche” of the holy family, with Charity Lofthouse as Mary, her six-week-old child Augustin as baby Jesus and Matthew Everett as Joseph. At left, Financial District resident Ralph Watson held his 16-month-old son, Sam, during the service. The service ended with the lights dimmed and the church full of voices singing “Silent Night.”
