Advent Spiral Walk

Turn off the hustle and bustle of the holidays and turn on the quiet. Usher in Christmas this year with a new contemplative family tradition. Children, of all ages, walk a candle-lit spiral made from evergreen boughs,placing a light on the path as we wait in anticipation of the birth of the Christ child: Jesus,the light of the world.

Saturday afternoon at the conclusion of the Advent Fair, December 10, from 3:00 p.m.-400 p.m. You are invited to bring greenery (cedar, pine, boxwood, pine cones, holly) to help assemble the spiral as we hang Advent stars. We will have hot cocoa and cider.

Sunday, afternoon, December 11, the Advent Spiral will be open from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. At the conclusion of the walk, each child will receive a Christingle candle to take home.

Admission is free. We will be collecting non-perishable canned goods or boxed cereal to be donated to the UCM food pantry.
