Archdiocesan Christmas Tree Lighting & Prayer Service
Thursday, December 2, 2021
Catholic Center Assembly Hall
1400 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN 46202
Doors will open at 6:00 p.m.
Prayer service begins at 6:30 p.m. Reception with light refreshments to follow. Parking is available at the Catholic Center.
Just as the Vatican in early December lights the Christmas tree in St. Peter’s Square and the Holy Father reflects on the Nativity, so, too, will Archbishop Thompson lead an Archdiocesan Christmas tree lighting and prayer service.
At this special event, we will prepare our hearts for Jesus’ coming as the Light of the World and celebrate those who have shared their own light by establishing memorial endowments in the names of loved ones.
Families welcome. This year, we will offer a supervised children's program for ages 4+ as an alternative to children participating in the Evening of Lights prayer service. When submitting your RSVP, please be sure to note how many children will be attending and their ages.
Please RSVP (no later than November 22nd) below to join Archbishop Charles C. Thompson and the Catholic Community Foundation for An Evening of Lights.
For a donation of $10 or more, you can dedicate a luminaria in memory of a loved one, which will be lit at the prayer service. Their legacy will live on as the gifts will be invested in the Catholic Community Foundation to support the growth of parish, school, and agency ministries.
For any questions regarding your RSVP or online donation, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (317) 236-1482.
