Jesse Tree Blessing - December 8
Posted 11/23/2019 07:40AM

Come to Saints Francis & Clare of Assisi Catholic Church on Sunday, December 8th!  During the 8:45 am Mass, Father Steve Giannini will bless the tree and the ornaments that our third graders have made.  The children will then place their ornaments on the Jesse Tree.  Jesse Trees are a very old Christmas Tradition that first started in medieval times.   It helps connect the custom of decorating a Christmas Tree to the events leading to Jesus' birth.  Each decorated ornament represents the people, prophesies and events leading up to the birth of Jesus.
