Parish Priest - Monsieur le cure - Lou Curat
It may seem surprising to some that the Parish Priest is present in the creche, in that he serves as Christ's representative and Christ has just now been born, but his presence is honored because of his importance as a Provençal village personality. Here he carries the traditional red umbrella - a symbol of respectability - and a gilt-edged prayer book in his hand. He wears the traditional priestly large, black hat.
