Christmas Tree Decorating Ministry Annual Report January 2012

CHRISTMAS DECORATING MINISTRY – Anthea and David Huisman

This year, Dave and I were asked by Diane Wilczak if we would be willing to take over the Christmas Decorating Ministry, to which we gladly accepted the position.

The church proper was decorated for the Nativity season, with everything going very smoothly. New garlands were purchased to highlight the red votive candles which sit on the pillars of the iconostasis. In doing this, we replaced the large hanging bows, which had caused difficulty in the past with tilting and falling off/out of position. (The garlands are our gift to the parish.) Many parishioners complimented on how beautiful the church looked, and especially on the new garlands saying they were "rich" looking and fit well on the iconostasis.

Plans for next year include replacing the garlands that sit on the windowsills, as they are showing their age and falling apart.

Dave and I would like to express our joy in having the pleasure of decorating the church for Christmas. With the addition of the poinsettias, the church was truly adorned for the Nativity season, shining with light and beauty announcing Christ's birth. We are glad that the parishioners of St. Luke's parish were pleased with the decorations.
