The majestic oak trees of the South and our State in particular are synonymous with our culture and the beauty our beloved ancestral land. This particular species of tree is a symbol of strength, stability, and steadfastness – three pillars on which our parish is built and strives to provide our community. Every year during the Advent season, Our Lady of Mercy wraps the magnificent oaks on our own campus with twinkling bright lights, reminding the community that Jesus is the Light of the World and that each of us is called to be a light as well.
We invite you to join in on our Festival of Lights by sponsoring one the 17 magnificent oaks on our campus. The sponsorship of an oak tree during the Advent and Christmas Seasons is a beautiful way to remember a cherished family member who has passed. Sponsored trees will be acknowledged with a sign near your tree. If you are interested in sponsoring a tree, please contact Ms. Ana Froelich at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office at 926-1883.
“We are the light of the world, may our light shine before all…”
