    Here's some great news on an upcoming special featuring puppets by Jane Henson with performances by Cheryl and Heather Henson...

    “A NEW YORK CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER”
    FROM THE CHURCH OF ST. PAUL THE APOSTLE IN NEW YORK CITY TO BE BROADCAST ON TUESDAY, DEC. 24 AT 11:35 PM-12:35 AM, ET/PT ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

    A holiday service of Lessons and Carols, A NEW YORK CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER, featuring host Regis Philbin and the puppetry of Jane Henson at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in New York City, will be broadcast Tuesday, Dec. 24 (11:35 PM-12:35 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

    Throughout this hour-long special, Regis Philbin will proclaim Biblical stories intercut with the puppet performances of Heather and Cheryl Henson. Jane Henson, who died last year, had a long history with puppetry and while studying theology was taken with the medieval three-dimensional Nativity scenes. She creatively blended these into a new format using puppets. Jane’s daughter, Heather, brought this to life, and along with her sister, Cheryl, and the puppets have toured and performed the Nativity Story. When they were approached by the Paulists to perform this for the CBS Christmas Special, they happily agreed along with Regis Philbin who will read the scripture narrations.

    Throughout this hour-long Christmas Special, choral music will be richly provided by the Fordham University Choir, the National Children’s Chorus and the St. Paul the Apostle Choir. The Church was built after the founding of the Paulist Fathers (1858) and is known as a most welcoming parish with a vibrant and historic outreach to the New York City community.

    This is a joint production of The Church of Saint Paul the Apostle, Paulist Production, and Scott Mirkin Productions. Rev. Gilbert Martinez, C.S.P., Marybeth Sprows, Rev. Eric Andrews C.S.P. and Scott Mirkin serve as Executive Producers. John P. Blessington is the Executive Producer for CBS.
