Shine Your Light

Roncesvalles Renewed - November 27, 2015 - 2:13pm

Kwanza |  Winter Solstice  | Christmas |  Hanukkah  | Yuletide

Calling All Groups!

Let’s fill the branches of the tree that is beside Roncesvalles United Church!  A community program to unite residents, show community spirit and celebrate all “light bearing” practices without ~ the excessive use of electrical power.

Let’s fill this tree with our Light!

Sponsor pre-crafted jars or make your own!   Get it On site or Pre-order

For a suggested minimum donation of $15, you can purchase a light and then write your own message to place inside.  Whether you bring your own or get one on site, you can watch it be installed in the tree on December 5th, our crew will be there between 1 to 4.  

If you can’t be there during installation, you can pre-order your “Light” using the contact form at bottom of this page or from the Office of the Roncesvalles United Church  (formerly Emmanuel Howard Park United Church) just make your payment at the church before the deadline.

A RoncyWorks member will make certain a “Light” is hung for you. Net monies collected will go towards the Roncesvalles United Church’s free Holiday Meal Program, which is open to all.

December 5th, 2015 at 1 p.m.
Roncesvalles United Church Office at 214 Wright Avenue
Office hours: All day Sunday. Monday to Friday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m..
Saturday at the Thrift Shop in the church basement from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

How To Do It Yourself:
  1. get an inexpensive solar light & mason jar (remove lid)
  2. acquire a bit of durable string or wire to hang your light with
  3. write a holiday message or blessing on a paper or coloured tissue and put inside
  4. assemble and hot glue solar disc onto mason jar
  5. drop it off at Roncesvalles United Church at 214 Wright Avenue (north side entrance) by December 5th, 1:00 p.m.

Throughout humanity, mankind has used the lighting of lights as a symbolic gesture of celebration, symbolism and reverence.  Whatever your belief system, how beautiful would it be to join together and share our own individual lights to celebrate the season, the community, our associations, our families – both here and gone.

“This little light of mine…. I’m going to let it shine”

Out of the darkness, light shall come ~ so share it with a neighbour.
