Six-year-old Olivia Engel was supposed to be an angel in Friday night's live Nativity performed at St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church.
"She was supposed to be an angel in the play," the Rev. Revered Robert Weiss told Reuters. "Now she's an angel up in heaven."
Brian Wallace, a spokesman for the Diocese of Bridgeport, said Weiss was sleeping Saturday night after staying up virtually all night caring for families Friday. He confirmed that Olivia was supposed to be in the live Nativity.
