Welcoming Advent- Wreath making
The Advent Event is back!
Join us to make an Advent Wreath with fresh evergreen boughs and candles to bring some light into this season of darkness as we await the coming of the Christ child.
This year we have two options:
Option 1- Join us in the Parish Hall on Friday November 26th at 7:00 p.m to make your Advent Wreath. We will observe safety protocols: masks and physical distancing -- each family will have their own table with wreath-making materials -- and we will not serve food. Please bring proof of vaccination with you (excepting children under 12). Please sign up so that we know how many people are coming in person. No need to order a kit, all supplies will be provided at the event. If you have a wreath frame from a past year, please bring it as we are not able to order them this year. We will have other wreath frames available but they do not have candle holders. There will be a box for donations to cover costs. Suggested donation: $15.
Option 2- Order a wreath kit and then join us on Zoom. In your kit you will find all the supplies needed to make your own wreath at home. This includes a wreath frame, greenery, decorations, and candles. You will need your own small candle holders to place around the wreath. Please sign up so that we can make the correct number of kits. Pick up your wreath kit at St. Matt's from 5:00 pm on Friday, November 26th. Join us on Zoom at 7:00 to make the wreaths.
** You can order a kit with no frame. If you have kept your frame from a previous year, you can order a kit with just greenery and decorations.
We are asking for a $20 donation for a full kit. $15 for a kit with no frame.
Come and prepare for the coming of our Lord with this evening of green boughs and candles, and a short Advent service around our wreaths at the end.Date: 11/26/2021 (Fri.) Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm EST Location: St. Matthew's Riverdale- Parish Hall and on Zoom
