Christmas Tree Blessing at Woking Branch

December 3rd, 2018

Lodge Brothers of Woking held a ‘Christmas Tree Blessing’ event on Thursday 29th November 2018 at 10.30am. Clients were invited to take a card and write a message to place on the Christmas tree. Many of these cards have already been received with poignant messages to loved ones.
‘We consider it a privilege to be able to serve the families in our community and as such extend to all the opportunity to remember loved ones with a special message at this time of year.’

The Reverend Kate Wyles from St Andrew’s Church, Goldsworth Park in Woking kindly attended to pray a special blessing in our branch. She led a personal service offering a chance for us to remember missing loved ones. The reading made reference to trees through the bible such as the fig tree, cedars of Lebanon to name just a few and she offered words of comfort. An opportunity was made to hang cards on the tree as Ave Maria played softly, a meaningful piece of music for a client attending. Refreshments were offered afterwards.
