Join us for the 30th annual lighting of the Tree of Remembrance on Tuesday, December 6 at 5:30 p.m. Located at the front of Providence Benedictine Nursing Center, 540 S. Main St., Mt. Angel, the tree will be lit with hundreds of lights representing loved
ones who have touched our lives and how, in remembering them, they continue to bring light to our world.
COVID precautions are still in place at Providence Benedictine, so the tree lighting and program will be held outside around the Tree. Please come and enjoy hot cocoa, hot cider, and singing Christmas carols together.
If you can’t attend in person, the program, including the traditional Blessing of the Tree by a Benedictine priest, will be broadcast live at 5:30 p.m. on KBZY Radio, 1490 AM. Click the “Listen Live
” link on the KBZY website to hear the program from anywhere in the world.
Our founders, the Benedictine Sisters of Mount Angel, started the Tree of Remembrance tradition. Sadly, the 39-foot Tree that has been at the center of this event for 29 years, snapped in half in last winter’s windstorm.
We will christen a new Tree of Remembrance at this year’s event.
