The Tree of Light, on Chapel Court, will be lit from Monday, 21st November at 4.00pm when an informal dedication service will take place, carried out by Father Owain Mitchell, allowing people the opportunity to reflect and help them over what can be a difficult time for people who are bereaved, lonely or ill.
This provides an opportunity for all members of the community to place a memory card (minimum contribution £5) on the tree in remembrance of departed loved ones.
The cards will be available to purchase from Monday.
A final service will take place on Friday, 6th January 2017 at 6.00pm when the tree lights will be switched off.
The Posada will start on Monday, 21st November. After the dedication service the figures of Mary and Joseph will begin their journey around the businesses and homes of Brigg.
