Make an Advent Wreath As Part of
Your Thanksgiving Family Tradition


The last Sunday of this month, November 29, is the First Sunday of Advent. Last year we made Advent wreaths together at Agape, but we can’t do that this year so gather your supplies and plan to make it as a family!


You need a frame with four candle holders. Many of you have one from last year, but if you lost it or need one, the church has several left — they will be available to pick up in the Narthex the weekend of November 22. We will also put the leftover boxes of candles (first come, first serve) in the Narthex. If you prefer, you can order your candles for curbside pickup at Michaels. A traditional wreath also has a white pillar candle, the Christ Candle, placed in the center and lit on Christmas Eve, and Michaels carries those as well, see here. You will also need a spool of paddlewire — you can grab an extra one at church if you need or purchase from Michaels.

How To

There is a good tutorial on making your wreath on YouTube here. Don’t worry about gathering as many supplies as she has, this isn’t a “holiday wreath” but an Advent wreath. Simple is better. You will want to use freshly cut greens and good choices include pine, spruce, fir, Leland cypress or any other kind of evergreen. Ivy, holly and cedar dry out very quickly so avoid those. Often, you can pick up free clippings from Christmas trees lots where trees are being trimmed. The key is freshness and keeping them moist.  Soak your greens in a bath of cold water for about 24 hours before using them. This will help them retain moisture. Also, keeping the wreath in contact with a shallow tray of water will significantly help to keep them moist. You can also mist the wreath to help keep it fresher.

If you have any questions, send me an email and I’ll do the best I can to help you…virtually.

Saints Bio: St. Hilda

Hilda (known in her own century as “Hild”) was the grandniece of King Edwin of Northumbria, a kingdom of the Angles. She was born in 614 and baptized in 627 when the king and his household became Christians. In 647 she decided to become a nun, and under the direction of Aidan she established several monasteries. Her last foundation was at Whitby. It was a double house: a community of men and another of women, with the chapel in between, and Hilda as the governor of both; and it was a great center of English learning, one which produced five bishops. Here a stable-boy, Caedmon, was moved to compose religious poems in the Anglo-Saxon tongue, most of them metrical paraphrases of narratives from Genesis and the Gospels. The Celtic peoples of Britain had heard the Gospel well before 300 Ad, but in the 5th and 6th century a massive invasion of Germanic peoples (Angles, Jutes, and Saxons) forced the native Celts out of what is now England and into Wales, Ireland, and Scotland. The invaders were pagans, and missionaries were sent to them in the north and west by the Celts, and in the south and east by Rome and other churches on the continent of Europe. Roman and Celtic traditions differed, not in doctrine, but on such questions as the proper way of calculating the date of Easter, and the proper style of haircut and dress for a monk. It was, in particular, highly desirable that Christians, at least in the same area, should celebrate Easter at the same time; and it became clear that the English Church would have to choose between the old Celtic customs which it had inherited from before 300, and the customs of continental Europe and in particular of Rome that missionaries from there had brought with them. In 664 the Synod of Whitby met at that monastery to consider the matter, and it was decided to follow Roman usage. Hilda herself greatly preferred the Celtic customs in which she had been reared, but once the decision had been made she used her moderating influence in favor of its peaceful acceptance. Her influence was considerable; kings and commoners alike came to her for advice. She was urgent in promoting the study of the Scriptures and the thorough education of the clergy. She died 17 November 680.
