Christmas Tree Blessing


 Blessed are you, Lord our God before whom all the trees of the forest sing for joy, for you have come to rule the earth and all its peoples in your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace. By His death on the cross and His rising in glory, the tree of our defeat has become our tree of victory, and the pure lights of Christ forever gladdens our waiting world.


We ask you to send Your blessing upon this tree which we have decorated in honor your Son’s birth. Let it help us to celebrate this holy season as living branches of Him, and bear the fruit of good works for your glory, this day and every day, both now and forever. Amen.

–   Fr. Michael Kwatera

In Christ’s peace,

Reverend Dennis J. Vincenzo
