A Celebration of Blessings at Annual Christmas Tree Lighting
On December 9, the Regis community joined together in celebration and gave thanks for the blessings received this past year at the annual Christmas Tree Lighting. All who were gathered in the chapel held a candle, and a flame from the Advent wreath was passed on to light the way as the congregation made its way to the Regis Quadrangle. The festive atmosphere continued with a Christmas celebration in the Regis Auditorium, with thanks to the Parents Club for their considerable generosity in providing hot chocolate and seasonal treats for all to enjoy.
We are your children
So precious in your sight
That you sent us your only Son to be one with and for us.
Help us, each one here tonight,
To be your presence in the world,
Our world so in need of healing, light and justice.
May we take your light into the world to dispel the darkness of sin and fear.
—Opening Prayer, Regis Advent Service
