This Advent season, St. Catherine's community are going to be decorating a Christmas tree in Dundarave and add it to the forest of trees that make up the Dundarave Festival of Lights.
Preparations need to start this coming week as the tree will be decorated during the last week of November. The tree costs St. Catherine's $120.00 and as this event is a Community Outreach event, we are expected to make a donation to the Lookout Shelter in North Vancouver.
The minimum donation is $250.00. So we are asking for your help with this project in several ways.
- We invite you to donate monetarily ASAP as all Christmas donations to the Lookout Shelter need to go in before the Christmas season gets underway. A basket will be availble for any monetary donations after the service on Sunday.
- We also need help creating decorations for the tree, as you know it will be outside, the decorations have to be weather proof. Bonnie Grundy has purchased clear ornaments that can be easily decorated with a simple seasonal message, scripture verse or Christmas symbol. Please pick up an ornament at the church - after the services in a basket in the Narthex. Return prepared ornaments to the church by Sunday Nov 22nd, 2020 (church office or Narthex basket).
- Finally, we need a few people to decorate the tree near the pier at Dundarave. This will take place during the final week of November. We will update you with a definite date/time as we are advised. We hope everyone will enjoy this small Outreach project and help out!
If you can help out in anyway, please let Bonnie Grundy know, her email is: [email protected]
