POST-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 21,2012 Page 5 Cushing Tree fjgl00ting by Cyn Donnelly On Saturday, December 15 th, the Friends of Richard Cardinal Cushing Memorial Park held their 17 th annual Christmas tree lighting cel- ebration at the Cardinal Cushing Park in the West End. Hundreds gathered to enjoy the Christmas music provided by the Eastwood Pro- ductions Duo of Norman and Gil as well as the Holy Trin- ity German Singers from the South End and the St. John Children's School Choir from the North End. Along with the tree light- ing, there was an appear- ance by the one and only Norman Herr enjoying the evening with Cassandra and Ben who attended the tree lighting and blessing. Santa was in attendance too! Saint Nicholas! The entire evening was dedicated to the victims of the Sandy Brook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecti- cut and in honor of them God Bless America was per- formed and sung by all in attendance. Norman Herr should be thanked and commended for organizing the suc- cessful and fun event and Blessing Service which in- cluded two handouts to all who attended: A booklet called The King of Glory which was full of Christ- mas carols, prayers and the story of Christmas and a pro- gram of the evening that in- cluded Christmas greetings from Norman, a poem and a prayer written by the late Cardinal Cushing and a poem Merry Christmas from Heaven written by John Mooney, Jr., which was also read at the service in honor of the victims of the Sandy Brook shooting. We look forward to what Norman and the Friends of Richard Cardinal Cushing Memorial Park have in store for the 18 th annual celebra- tion next year! St. John Children's School Choir.
