Our event will not be held in 2021. Mark your calendars for Sunday, Nov. 27, 2022. We are also considering a second program for those who prefer a daytime activity: Monday, Nov. 28, 2022. We look forward to getting back together next year for our 23rd Advent by Candlelight!
Advent by Candlelight has become a well-loved tradition! Volunteer hostesses transform the lobby of the Worship & Event Center by setting festive banquet tables. The room is soon filled with women, lovely tables, and the glow of candles. After an hour-long program, we share a dessert and visit. This is a quiet and happy evening when we pause to remember that Jesus is born for us.
Who can attend?
The program is designed for ladies high-school age and older. You do not need to be a member of St. Lornez to attend, or to host. It's a free event; many ladies invite friends or family.
Because of limited seating, reservations are required. We'll publish details on that by Oct. 31. Anybody with internet access can register online. Others can call to reserve seats.
Who can host? How does that work?
Have you heard that hostesses love their job? As a hostess, you set a banquet table (6-8 seats, including your seat) and provide a dessert for those at your table. You may do this on your own or share the responsibility with a friend. You may invite ladies to sit at your table, or allow the seats to be filled via the sign-up process. Fancy tablecloth and dishes? Wonderful! Paper products and plastic silverware? That's fine, too! Click on Hostess Guidelines for more details. Hostesses also use an online registration form. Thank You for volunteering; we appreciate your work!
How much are tickets?
This is a free event and we love to fill up seats! It has been our tradition to accept cash donations at the door for young adults in Bay County who have "aged out" of foster care. Many of these youth are struggling on their own to attend school, work, or set up a household. Your donations are used throughout the year for essentials. There is no obligation to donate.
