Chicago's second oldest church has received a rare gift to mark its 155th anniversary.

The Shrine of our Lady of Pompeii has given about a dozen nativity scenes from around the world to Holy Family on W. Roosevelt.

Holy Family is also receiving what officials say is a relic from the manger where Christ was born in Bethlehem. Visitors are invited to see these gifts after an anniversary mass at Holy Family taking place on Sunday.
