On Dec.18th, 2022, Holy Trinity Church in Codroy, held their annual Memorial Tree lighting service. Loved ones’ names were read out by lay ministers, as bulbs were lit and cards were put on the tree by their family members. It was a lovely way to remember all of our loved ones who have gone on before us at Christmas time.
We also incorporated our “Blue Christmas” into our evening program service. This is a beautiful service to help all those who are lonely or sad at that time of year, and perhaps don’t experience joy in the Christmas season for various reasons. Our church family acknowledged those very real feelings by using blue lights, and blue candles to decorate the church. Many thanks to all who helped in any way with this service.
