What is a Jesse tree: A Jesse tree represents the family tree of Jesus Christ. Each ornament represents a story from the Bible that tells about God’s people before Jesus was born. Each story shows God’s salvation plan and tells how He guided humanity to prepare for the coming of the Messiah. The tradition of the Jesse Tree dates back to the middle ages. The name “Jesse Tree” comes from Isaiah 11.1 - “Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, and a branch from his roots will bear fruit.” Jesse is the father of King David, the saviour was to come from David’s family line.

Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child with a life-threatening medical condition. Since its inception in 1992, Make-A-Wish has granted wishes for more than 2,600 brave children across Ireland, including 181 wishes granted in 2019 alone. A wish granted is true magic for the child, providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatment. Make-A-Wish does not receive any government funding, and relies overwhelmingly on the kindness of the Irish public to continue granting wishes. They believe a wish can have a lasting impact on a child’s life. A wish involves the whole family and can create moments of joy – and memories that last a life-time. The money they raise in Ireland is spent granting the wishes of children all over Ireland. To learn more or donate, see - www.makeawish.ie
