It’s “Forensic Files goes to Bethlehem” in this holiday mystery extravaganza by the creator of the Late Nite Catechism comedies. This time, Sister takes on the mystery that has intrigued historians throughout the ages: whatever happened to the Magi’s gold? (“We know that Mary used the frankincense and myrrh as a sort of potpourri – they were in a barn after all,” she explains.) Assisted by a local choir and a gaggle of audience members, Sister directs an unforgettable living nativity and employs her own CSI-inspired tools to find the culprit. With gifts galore and bundles of laughs, Sister’s Christmas Catechism is sure to become the newest addition to your holiday traditions.

99.9 KEZ is the media sponsor of Sister’s Christmas Catechism.
