Lights of Hope


These special ornaments are made from lights which once shone at The Grotto’s Christmas Festival of Lights, bringing light and warmth to all who passed by.

Each ornament is handmade and unique, and includes a card insert. Each comes in a box suitable for storing.

Ornaments are $20 each. Your support will help The Grotto keep its lights on during our closure.

New ornaments added today!

May these ornaments light up your heart and remind you of the promise of God’s saving light and love.
