For Your Holiday Traditions …

Celebrate this joyous season with:

An Advent wreath: Kits are available for purchase in the Church and at the Rectory during the weekend of November 25 and 16. Full Advent wreath kits are priced at $10 and replacement candles are available at a cost of $4 a box.

Oplatek: Christmas wafers, or Oplatek, will be available at our Church entrances for $1 during December. These unleavened wafers are used as reminders of the Body of Christ. Family members and friends break off small pieces and give them to one another, along with a blessing. This tradition is a symbol of forgiveness and is meant to remind participants of the importance of Christmas, God and family.

St. Lucy’s Wheat: Christmas wheat, or St. Lucy’s wheat, will be available at entrances to the Church. It should be planted by December 13, the Feast of St. Lucy. It will grow into a grass-like plant, which may be clipped an used as bedding in your manger set.
