Community Tree of Remembrance

Faith & Grief Ministries recognizes that the holiday season can bring sadness and a swirl of conflicting emotions for those who are grieving both the personal and communal loss of loved ones.

This December the first Community Tree of Remembrance will be at Thanks-Giving Square in Dallas, Texas, to provide individuals and the community opportunities to remember and honor those who remain special to them.  Throughout the month visitors will be able to write the names of loved ones on ribbons of white, tie them to a circle of life, and have moments of personal reflection.

On December 21 the community will unite in remembering loved ones on the longest night of the year.  This service is designed and led by Faith and Grief Ministries and Faith Forward Dallas. 

All are invited to visit the Community Tree of Remembrance and the worship services.  Special guests are area First Responders, members of the El Centro community, and those impacted by the July 7th tragedies.
