St. Andrew held a Christmas Tree Blessing ceremony on Thursday.

Over 700 students each wrote a prayer and placed them inside ornaments, which were used to decorate a Christmas tree in the school’s courtyard.

Teachers and students gathered in the courtyard during school to see the tree blessed by St. Andrew Pastor Thomas Stabile following a few words of Christmas faith.


The Christmas tree is now a permanent fixture in the school’s courtyard thanks to the St. Andrew Green Thumb Club, Rose Hall, St. Andrews Development Director, said.
