Advent By Candlelight 2022

Hope, Peace, Joy and Love
Preparing Our Hearts for Advent

Wednesday, November 30, 2022 in the Parish Hall
5:30 – 9:00pm

Advent by Candlelight is an annual event for the women of our parish.  We gather in joyful anticipation to prepare our hearts to celebrate the coming of the Messiah.  The Parish Hall is transformed into a candlelit wonderland, complete with dinner, drinks, music, prayer and an inspirational speaker.

Dinner is provided by Rosati’s and will be served buffet style.  Dietary restrictions are available upon request. 

A dessert buffet will be provided.

Women can sign up to host (or co-host) a table of 8.   Or you can register as an individual guest and we will assign you to a table.

A hostess will invite other women to join her for the evening and decorate the table with her choice of Advent/Christmas decorations and candles.  The hostess may bring wine to serve at the table and light appetizers if desired.  Each table is responsible for their own clean up. 

Hostess set up will begin at 4:00pm.  Women of Ascension will provide each table with a black table cloth, plates, cups, silverware and napkins.   You may, if desired, bring your own tableware to use.  Please bring a water pitcher/carafe for your table.


Teresa Hamilton, founder of “Giving the Basics,” will speak on “Advent, Preparing the Heart of a Woman.”
