What is it?
Jesse trees are a very old Advent tradition, first started in medieval times. The first Jesse trees were large carvings, tapestries, or even stained glass windows put in churches that helped illiterate people learn about the Bible from creation to the Christmas story.
At St. Luke’s we adorn the tree which is set up and adorned with warm apparel such as mittens, scarves, socks, and toques that are removed just before Christmas
and given to the less fortunate.
Your skills and compassion in donating items and placing on the Jesse tree is deeply appreciated by all involved.
