Advent calendars have long been used by Christians to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas. This year, Rev W. Leah Harding, Director of Pastoral Care at our Hilltop Campus created an advent calendar for our residents and to share with the community.

Reflection from Rev. Lea:

We are trying something new to help everyone get into the holiday spirit with our very own Hilltop Advent Calendar.

Advent marks the four weeks before Christmas.  Many families have an Advent Calendar to count down the days until Christmas beginning on December 1.  Our calendar will follow the church count beginning on Sunday, November 29.  Each day a single activity is offered to do that day.  They are all things our residents can do in their own room during the COVID-19 restrictions.

I hope you will enjoy this take on ‘counting down the days’ to Christmas.

In Peace,
Rev. Lea
