Mass and Christmas Tree Lighting 2023
Celebrate the start of the holiday season amongst family, friends and your Redhawk community on Thursday, Nov. 30. Gather for the annual Mass at the Chapel of St. Ignatius (6 p.m.), then join in the procession to the Quad for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony filled with fun and carols (7 p.m.).

Once the tree is lit, the festivities continue for the whole family. Enjoy the brand-new Christmas market featuring booths with local retailers, get your picture taken with Santa and his real reindeer, make holiday-themed crafts and enjoy food, cocoa and warm adult beverages for our 21+ guests. There's truly something for everyone!
