Advent Wreath Event



Sunday the 29th of November will be the first Sunday of Advent.

This year we will not be able to host our annual Advent Wreath Evening.


We recognize the immense popularity of this event and especially under the current circumstances, the need to create moments that can be cherished with family during the upcoming Christmas season.  So we have decided to offer the kits we usually provide at the dinner for pre-order to pick up and take home.


Wreath kits that you can assemble and decorate at home are available. Each kit costing $30, will contain:


  • an oasis wreath,
  • 4 candle holders,
  • 1 pink and 3 purple 12” taper candles with matching satin ribbons
  •  boxwood greens.
  • instructions on how to make the wreath (also available below on this page)

Wreath kits may be ordered online by clicking the button below or

by sending a check payable to Holy Spirit Church with a notation “Advent Wreath”
which can be mailed to the rectory or placed in the collection box after Mass.


Rectory address is

Church of the Holy Spirit

403 Scofieldtown Road

Stamford, CT 06903
