Advent by Candlelight - Sunday, December 8
Ticket sales have begun! Stop by the rectory or the school office to purchase your $15 ticket. On Sunday, December 8th, doors open at 4:00 PM giving ticket holders time to view the candlelit tables and decorations and partake in hors d'oeuvres and hot drinks. At 5:30 PM, the Advent program begins with a special reflection by Marlene Mulford, followed by a scrumptious dessert buffet and concludes with a performance by the Children's Jubilate Choir.
Volunteers are needed to make the evening a success. Text or call Mary Cumming at 217.306.6953 to decorate a table, Sheri Dhabalt at 217.414.1472 to bring a dessert, and Sally Petrone at 217.341.9088 for more details.
