Bishop Robert J. Brennan, Bishop of Brooklyn, will join DeSales Media at the Diocese of Brooklyn’s official Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony tomorrow, Wednesday, December 6, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. This year, due to construction, the tree is adjacent to the Dr. Alexander Skene monument on the southeast of the central ellipse of Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn.

The event will include remarks from Bishop Brennan, a scripture reading, Christmas songs sung by cantors from the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph, and a blessing of the Nativity and the Christmas tree.

The 21-foot Balsam Fir tree will be decorated with more than 15,000 multi-colored LED lights to represent the diversity of the Diocese of Brooklyn and lighted large red Christmas balls. A four-foot star will top the tree from Elwood Farms in Huntington, Long Island.

Christine Persichette, anchor of Currents News on NET-TV, will serve as the Mistress of Ceremonies.
