Advent by Candlelight 2017 (scroll down to registration form)

About our Guest Speaker
Who is Matthew Leonard? I’m a Catholic author, speaker, Vice President & Executive Producer at the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology.
I also host a podcast on iTunes titled, “The Art of Catholic“, which is listened to in over 160 countries…and counting.
At this time we are actively seeking table hostesses. We have 52 tables available with 1-2 hostesses per table. A hostess would decorate her table with anything from paper products to china and provide one table ready appetizer for her guests. In order to make the burden lighter for the hostess we will be asking each couple/guest to bring a table ready appetizer to share with their table. As a hostess, you could fill your table of 8-12 guests (including yourself) with friends or family or we could fill it for you with general reservations.
Bringing a Dish
In order to make the burden lighter on the hostesses we will be asking each guest/couple to bring a table ready appetizer or hors d’oeuvre to share with their table. It will be up to each hostess to coordinate the menu for their table with their guests.
Raffle & Offering
There is no charge for the evening but one of the purposes of Advent by Candlelight is to raise money for the Adult Faith Formation ministry. The funds raised will be used to pay off any expenses incurred for this event first and the balance used to bring in other renowned speakers throughout the year and to offer financial assistance for other adult faith programs. We will accomplish this in 2 ways:
Pictures of the baskets will be on display and raffle tickets will be available for purchase in the vestibule and in the bulletin on the weekends of November 19, 26, and December 3.
During Advent by Candlelight raffle gift baskets/items will be placed in both Loreto Hall and the St. Faustina Room. Teams will be circulating to sell the tickets for the drawings from 5:30-6:30 p.m. You are encouraged to visit both halls before dropping your tickets into basket drawings.
Winners will be announced in each hall. Guests will then retrieve their basket if they are present. Otherwise, it will be available for claim in the Faith Formation office during normal business hours.
This event is open to anyone who wishes to attend. It is not necessary to have been invited by a hostess. Many of our hostesses are offering all or several of the seats at their table to people who register through general reservations.
