Happy 10th Anniversary to St. Mary’s “Light Up a Memory” Tree

Plans for the 10th anniversary of the St. Mary’s “Memory Tree” in December are already underway. A $10 donation secures a light in memory of a deceased loved one or in honor of a living recipient. His/her name will be inscribed in a special “Memory Book” that will be on display in the church Gathering Space. Each donor will receive a lovely card to share with the family of the deceased or with the honoree. The deadline is November 27. All donations will go toward improvements at St. Mary’s parish.

Participants are also invited to the joyous tree lighting ceremony on December 16. Enjoy music by St. Mary’s choir and a special 10th anniversary reception, with delicious refreshments in the Gathering Space, after the 4:00 p.m. Mass.

For more information, call the office at (732) 780-2666 or the co-chairs, Molly Aiello at (732) 598-6808 and Freda O’Doherty at (732) 577-9541. All are invited to be a part of this lovely Christmas tradition. The “Memory” lights will twinkle until the feast of Epiphany (“Three Kings”) on January 6. Thank you to everyone for the continuous support of the parish community.
