Grace in the News: The World Tree of Hope

Blog|Brendan Byrne

Grace Cathedral welcomes the Rainbow World Fund (RWF) World Tree of Hope for the holidays. We officially lit the tree and celebrated the holidays at a ceremony on Tuesday December 10.

KCBS Radio did a segment covering the lighting ceremony. You can listen here.

The World Tree of Hope will be on view through January 10, 2020. 

The RWF World Tree of Hope is a gift to the San Francisco Bay Area and the world from the LGBT community. It is the largest annual origami-decorated holiday tree in the world, with more than 17,000 origami cranes and stars. Wishes are sent in from around the world by mail and online at The wishes are then printed and folded into origami cranes by a diverse team of volunteers.
