The 2013 Boar’s Head Pageant

We are proud to announce the date of the tenth annual presentation of The Boar’s Head Pageant.  The parish of St. Albert the Great will be presenting our traditional Christmas pageant on Saturday, January 5th at 7:00 p.m.

Each year we grow, add new volunteers and see our cast evolve into new roles.  Each year our Pageant is different, and yet each year it brings the same message of the love of our Lord to our modern world.  Join us in celebrating the feast of the Epiphany, the arrival of the Magi and the 12th day of Christmas with our new cast of characters and a delightful musical pageant we know as – The Boar’s Head Pageant.

Please check out the rest of this website for ticket information and details.
