Holiday focus at Cathedral Shop

Holiday focus at Cathedral Shop

The Cathedral Shop opens the Christmas shopping season Nov. 12, with an afternoon preview of its Fair Trade Global Nativity Market. Nativities — all for sale — will be on display in the shop and tasting of wines from the Bishop's Vineyard will be offered from noon to 5 p.m.

The spotlight will be on Fair Trade, representing crafters from around the world. Many Nativities will be miniature, with figures no taller than 3 inches. Some will be matchbox size; others fit inside a nutshell. Many are one of a kind, and are priced from $10. The most expensive is $300.

Three years ago, a popular holiday exhibit at the Cathedral Shop was the collection of international Nativities of Judy Davis of El Cerrito. Davis, who is consulting with shop administrator Michele Zaugg on the 2015 exhibition, has since donated her collection to the University of Dayton.

In addition to the Fair Trade Nativities, traditional Florentine-style Nativity scenes will also be available.

In addition to the in-shop display, a 3-D display of Nativities made by students from St. Callistus Parish in El Sobrante will be on exhibit in the Art Hall.

The Nativity show will open at noon Nov. 12, in the shop, which is on the Cathedral Plaza. Wine tasting from the Bishop's Vineyard wines will be available to those 21 and over. Bishop's Vineyard wines are made from grapes grown on Catholic cemetery property and have been crafted into reserve quality wines by Rock Wall Winery owner Shauna Rosenblum.

A portion of the income from Bishop's Vineyard Wine Club provides tuition assistance to needy students wishing to attend a Catholic school. Bishop's Vineyard wine can be ordered at the Cathedral Shop and online at www.bishopsvineyard.org.
