THE LITURGY COMMITTEE - DECORATING CHRISTMAS TREE
This year the Liturgy Committee asks our entire parish family to participate in decorating our Christmas tree. For two weekends, the First Sunday of Advent, November 29/30 and the following weekend, December 6/7, we will have a “Parish Giving Tree” to collect children’s toys. On the next two weekends, December 13/14 and 20/21, we ask that each family place an ornament on the tree. It’s our hope that ALL families will help create a tree decorated with ornaments that have a special meaning to them. With a “treasured ornament” from many families/individuals, our tree will be a beautiful representation of the All Saints Parish Family.
