Statement of Bishop Thomas J. Tobin

“It’s very unfortunate that the Governor has caused so much division in the State that he cannot even have a publicly announced Christmas tree lighting ceremony that many of our citizens would enjoy at this beautiful time of the year.  I wish that the Governor would respect the heartfelt sentiments of the vast majority of Rhode Islanders and simply call the tree what it is – a Christmas tree.

I look forward to joining with Fr. James Ruggieri and many others on December 19 at 6:00 p.m. at St. Patrick’s Parish in Providence for the lighting of the parish Christmas tree.”
