Angel Christmas Tree Fundraiser

Christmas is a wonderful time to share with friends and family and think of loved ones both present and past. This year, as a way to commemorate and celebrate those special people, you will be able to sponsor a bulb or strand of lights in their name on the village Christmas tree! Reserve your lights for $5 a bulb.

On December 6, 2020 at 6 p.m., Saint Thomas d’Aquin Parish will host a spectacular lighting of the tree event, with the Village Choir singing your favourite Christmas classics. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served.

This is a great event for all! Show your support for the Saint Thomas d’Aquin Parish, sponsor a light today by clicking on the GIVE button below or by contacting

Please Note: If you so choose, we ask that you put the names of those you wish to honour with your donation in the Note/Memo section of the online donation form.
