Advent by Candlelight is a special evening for women to become renewed and refreshed before the Christmas rush begins. This is an opportunity to relax and refocus on the season of Advent – a wonderful time of waiting and anticipation. In an elegant atmosphere, lit only by candlelight, guests are served a delightful dessert by a table hostess. The program includes uplifting Scripture readings, music and reflections focused on the Advent season.
This year's event will be held Friday, Dec. 5, 2014.
Become a Hostess
A table hostess invites seven of her female friends to serve them for an evening. The hostess sets her table, with that year's theme in mind, and provides a dessert for her guests. It is truly a night for her to show her friends how much she cares for them under the hue of candlelight. Hostess registration opens annually on Oct. 1. The hostess provides all of her own table settings except the table cloth, which is provided by CtR. Tables seat eight people – one hostess and seven guests – and are limited to the first 45 registrants. Any woman of the parish may be a table hostess.
Additional information about the program theme and table hostess guidelines are provided annually through a mandatory table hostess meeting. Information will also be available on the website and in the bulletin.
