About our Guest Speaker
Who is Mike Scherschligt? Mike is the founder and the CEO/President of the Holy Family School of Faith. Mike has a Licentiate in Sacred Theology (STL) from the Marianum in Rome. Holy Family School of Faith is a public association of the faithful established by Archbishop Joseph Naumann, Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, to form catholic school teachers, catechists and the faithful. In addition to our Catechism series, he is the author of the on-line series, Faith Foundations used to certify catechists throughout the United States. Mike and his wife Sandy have five children and reside in Overland Park, Kansas.
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 to bring a table ready appetizer or hors d’oeuvre to share with his/her table. It will be up to each hostess to coordinate the menu for her table with her guests.
Gift Basket Raffle
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 through a Gift Basket Raffle.
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.
