Tree of Lights Stars:
Beginning on December 22nd, stars will decorate the Christmas tree at St. John’s to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.
During the Christmas Season each of these stars will remind us to pray for an individual, a family, or a prayer intention. A label with this intention will be attached in the center of each star.
In exchange for your payment of $5.00 per star, we will attach the name or prayer intention you wish to include in our Christmas prayer.
