TULSA, OK -- A downtown Tulsa church saw a spike in attendance on Sunday evening for their annual epiphany service and a few guests were a little out of the ordinary.

Three camels were part of the worship service at Trinity Episcopal Church. The camels were there to represent the ones ridden by the three wise men on the night of Jesus' birth.

"It was one of my crazy ideas to try bringing camels to Trinity," said Father Joseph Alsay. "Since it was such a great hit last year we decided we could try the camels again."

Children at the church were given rides.

"It makes this biblical story come alive," Alsay said. "It's certainly an event the children will not only remember, but those of us young at heart won't forget."
