Saint Barbara Covenant Care Community Christmas Tree Prayer Service

Saint Barbara Church announces a new ministry entitled the Covenant Care Community Ministry.  This Ministry Team is helping develop and unfold the nurturing prayer needed in dealing with aspects of grief at the holidays and during the season of Grief that you may be experiencing. 

As this ministry develops, we begin by introducing the Saint Barbara Covenant Care Christmas Tree Prayer Service.  The Prayer Service will take place in the Church Sanctuary on Wednesday, December 9, 2015 at 7 p.m.  Please arrive by 6:45 pm to pick up your Leaf of Remembrance before for the service begins.  

Come and join us as Fr. Peter leads the community in a service highlighting prayers of remembrance for any loved ones who have passed, and a fortitude of prayers of strength for our continual spiritual growth, as individuals, and as a community.

At the conclusion of the Prayer Service, we will have an opportunity to honor the names of the departed soul of our loved one(s) who has passed.  We, at the same time will collectively place each Leaf Of Remembrance hand-made ornament on a beautiful Christmas Tree that is set-up at the front of the church. 

Each leaf signifies a way for us to embrace our Holy Faith, as well as to embrace with love and remembrance the souls of those in the Church Triumphant.
