The Chrismom Tree in the sanctuary

What are Chrismoms? The large white and gold symbols on the giant tree in the sanctuary?

Watch this episode of Church Knows Church to find out.

Not many of us know the meaning behind each symbol, but here are some clues. 

Special thanks to the John Vaccaro and his family for the tree. For many years they donated the tree that stands so tall on Christmas Eve. This year John has graciously offered to donate some of the gifts given in memory of his beloved wife, Robbie, for the purchase of a faux Chrismom tree that we can enjoy year after year.
