ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. — Students at St. Leo's School in Elmwood Park are actively participating with the Jesse Tree Services at the school.

This is a tree, or a large banner with a symbolic tree, that is decorated each week, usually by the children, with ornaments or objects that represent biblical events from creation to the birth of Jesus. The ornaments are traditionally handmade.

An ornament is added one each day of Advent, or a group on each Sunday, with explanations of the symbols and a brief verse of Scripture from the story represented. Some churches choose to decorate the tree with small items of warm clothing as a way to minister to the needy in the community.

For more information click here. The school is located at 300 Market St.
