St. Matthew's Christkindlmarkt
Saint Matthew can't wait to welcome our neighbors to our first Christkindlmarkt. We hope this will be a neighborhood tradition that brings our community together this festive time of year - young, old, single person, couples, and families alike!
We are decking our courtyard out for this event. That said, our back courtyard (pictured above) can hold only so many people at a time. Faced with this reality, we are asking you to sign up for one of two Christkindlmarkt time-slots to try accommodate as many people as possible. You may park in our front parking lot, the middle spaces of our back parking lot, Tower Rd & Hillside side streets, and if need be we will direct people to park on the grass field. Watch for parking attendants onsite for directions.
Both during the 4:30PM time slot and 6:00PM time slot we will pause for a brief program of Nativity Readings and Singing Carols together. We have constructed timber frame booths from which we have invited Barrington area vendors to sell products. The hot cocoa, mulled wine, brats, gingerbread cookies, pastries, and cinnamon/sugar pretzels will be offered compliments of St. Matthew as long as supplies last.
You and your kids can spend time visiting with Saint Nicholas of Myra, from whom Santa Clause is derived. Saint Nicholas has some gifts for the kids too! Don't worry, he won't let the cat out of the bag about Santa with your kiddos. We also will be running a train for kids to ride. It will be along the perimeter of our back parking lot. If you pull in the parking lot with your car, please be very careful. Again, parking attendants will help.
Lastly, we are hoping to keep this a local tradition and gathering. We didn't advertise far and wide. We have put it on door hangers in the village, advertised it in District 220s e-backpacks at nearby schools, and pitched a sign in front of the church. We have invited Barrington area businesses to our booths. Our Saint Matthew family has been your neighbor in Barrington for almost 90 years, and we enjoy sharing life with you together.
From the Saint Matthew Family to yours, Merry Christmas!
