Christmas Tree Lighting & Blessing at Martyrs’ Shrine
The Martyrs’ Shrine invites local residents and visitors to kick off the Christmas season by attending their annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Blessing on Saturday, November 21st. This event is free to attend.
Between 6:00pm and 7:30pm, friends, family and pilgrims are invited to the Martyrs’ Shrine as they illuminate the largest Christmas tree in Simcoe County. The 85ft spruce tree is strung with bright white LED lights and remains lit throughout the Christmas season.
The tree will be lit up at 6:30pm.
Reverend Bernard Carroll, S.J. will give a special prayer service and blessing and the church bells will be chiming festive carols. The Vox Huronia Community Choir will also be performing Christmas carols on the steps of the church.
Come and celebrate the start of the season of light with an evening of caroling, warm apple cider and Christmas cheer!
