A man who came to Nebraska from Spain is working with members of a Lincoln Hispanic Catholic Church to bring the "Belen" tradition to America. In this story which originally aired in 2006, Jerry Johnston went behind the scenes to see how it all comes together.

The Manger scene at El Christo Rey Church in Lincoln opens this year on December 24th, and will be open to the public when the church is open until January 10th. The church is at 4221 J St. in Lincoln
