ADVENT WORKSHOP
Kick off the Advent season with a family-friendly event, Advent Workshop, to be offered outdoors this year on Sunday, December 5 from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.  Families will enjoy time together crafting (and eating) a candy creche to display in your home. Pick-up kits will also be available. It’s $15 to participate and registration is required. Click here to register.

WREATH KITS
Kits and candles will be available for pick up in the Great Hall on Sunday, November 21 and during office hours through December 5. Click here to register.  

ADVENT CALENDARS
New this year, we will be offering an Advent calendar for your family to enjoy. Families are encouraged to participate daily with the calendar and post a video/picture on social media using the hashtag #SUMCADVENTure. Calendars will be available for pick-up beginning Sunday, November 28. Click here to register by 8 p.m. on Sunday, November 28.
