Parish of St. Mary to Light 12th Annual Memory Tree

Plans for the 12th anniversary Memory Tree in December are already underway at the parish of St. Mary. A $10 donation signifies a light to honor all those living and deceased we wish to remember during the Christmas season. His/her name will be inscribed in a special Memory Book, which will be on display in the Church Gathering Space. Each $10 also entitles the donor to a lovely card to send to the family of the deceased or to the honoree. The deadline for forms is Tuesday, Dec. 3. All contributions will benefit improvements at St. Mary’s parish.

Participants are also invited to the joyous tree lighting ceremony, with music by St. Mary’s choir and a special reception, featuring delicious refreshments in the Gathering Space after the 4 pm Mass on Saturday, Dec. 14.

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 Monday, Jan. 6.
