Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Each year the Diocesan Child Protection Office enters a tree in the Grand Island Stuhr Museum's Fantasy of Trees Exhibit.  Each tree has a right relationship theme to help promote a culture of protection and healing.  Decorations from past exhibits are available for display in your parish or school!  Check out the trees above and  Contact the Diocesan Child Protection office for more information.  cpo@gidiocese
