Tree of Light and Remembrance Lighting Ceremony

Dec 9, 2014

The Tree of Light and Remembrance Lighting Ceremony was held on December 5 at 6:30 in Triangle Park.

Fr. Cory Rohlfing told the story of how the Tree of Light and Remembrance came to be and Pastor Victoria Stafford from the WB Unitarian Universalist Church gave a beautiful blessing of the tree. While the community gathered for the ceremony some of the St. Jude Choir members sang carols by the fire. The names of the loved ones were read by community members from area churches, the fire department, and local businesses.

The brave souls who ventured out in the cold to enjoy the ceremony were treated to cookies and hot cocoa.

This is the sole fundraiser of the Mahtomedi Area Food Shelf and it raised almost $7000!
