(Phoenix) - Xavier College Preparatory is pleased to announce its annual Christmas Pageant on Sunday, December 8th at 2:00 p.m. in the Virginia G. Piper Performing Arts Center on Xavier's campus. The pageant is the traditional story of the birth of Christ as told through reverent music and dance, and this year's theme is "Hope Is Born." The performance is Xavier's gift to the community, so there will not be a charge for admission. Please come and enjoy!
