It's back as an in-person event - and it promises to be as good as ever - as the Killarney Memory Tree will once again take place at Holy Cross Mercy School.

As organisers prepare for their 10th Christmas season, they are delighted to reveal that once again the events will be in-person.

The official 'Switch On' of the Memory Tree will take place on Monday, December 5 at 7pm and all are welcome join in.

Those attending will be led in prayer by Fr Seán Jones with festive carols by candlelight.

"All are welcome to join us in person or online via the Killarney parish webcam on www.killarneyparish.com," Rhonda Healy from Holy Cross Mercy School said.

The Memory Tree will be lit nightly during the Christmas season and will stay lit until January 6, the Feast of The Epiphany.

"We thank everyone who has supported this initiative in the past as it is an extremely important fundraiser for our school." 

"We are thrilled that the in-person events associated with the Memory Tree can return this year. The lights on Killarney’s Memory Tree will be lit during the Christmas season. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered for those being commemorated."

Mass will be offered for all those being commemorated at 12 noon on Wednesday, December 16 in St Mary’s Cathedral.

"Lights are available to buy online from our school website www.mercyholycross.ie or from the school office at Holy Cross Mercy School on New Road. Thank you for your ongoing support of our school."
