Advent by Candlelight

On Monday, December 1, women are invited to take a step back from the holiday season’s hustle and bustle to focus on the true meaning of adventcandlesAdvent.  “Advent by Candlelight” is a special evening designed to help women become renewed and refreshed.  In an elegant atmosphere lit only by candlelight, guests will enjoy an inspirational message from parishioner Jodi Traub about finding peace in this hectic world.  Then, attendees will enjoy delicious desserts while connecting with friends -- old and new – around beautifully decorated tables.  The event is free, but registration is required.  The planning committee is looking for volunteers to serve as table hostesses for the event.  Visit our table in the Narthex after Masses on November 15/16 or 22/23 to register and learn more about the event.  Contact Jodi Traub at 630-882-9000 or Megan Jones at 630-801-5223 with questions.
