ON-GOING CHURCH DECORATION-PROJECT for THE WHOLE PARISH: We have gatherd to decorate the Church. Parish healing is the theme of this Christmas. Colors: white and red.
The Decoration includes few projects: 1- Parish Poinsettia Tree of love: parishioners are invited to bring poinsettias representing their families or intentions and we will build with these poinsettias a tree of love representing our community; each person or family is invited too to display a Christmas Card together with the poinsettia with a greeting to the whole community. 2- Manger and Christmas Trees. We are decorating outside the church as well. 3- We dedicated as well one tree as Prayer Tree. You are invited to decorate the tree with paper construction chains or any other symbols that represent your individual or family burdens. Everyone of us may adopt a “burden” and pray for it by tying a ribbon or any other symbol of hope and healing to that “burden.”
