Tree lighting

On Dec. 7, Christmas trees scattered on the Saint Peter Church, Merchantville, grounds illuminated bright red and gold lights for the season. Following the parish’s Saturday evening Mass, with the Children’s Choir singing, more than 150 trees donated by parishioners, families, and friends in remembrance of loved ones, were blessed, decorated and lit for all to gather amid and enjoy for Christmastime.
