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.
