Deac families – we are a few weeks away from one of Wake Forest’s most cherished holiday traditions, the Lovefeast, but we have an opportunity to help you be a part of it. For those who are not familiar with the Lovefeast, you can see a blog post from last year’s Lovefeast on the Daily Deac. While the dates are a year old, hopefully the description of the evening will give you a sense of what this event is.
The opportunities are below. You can purchase a Lovefeast kit (while supplies last) and/or take part virtually by watching the livestream of the event via the WFU website. Details are below.
As Wake Forest celebrates its 50th Annual Lovefeast on December 7, we are providing a unique opportunity for you to bring the cherished Wake Forest tradition into your home for the holidays.

About the Wake Forest Lovefeast tradition: The world’s religious and philosophical perspectives, among their magnificent diversity, also all articulate a variety of shared values. These are noble virtues such as mercy, compassion, and love, as well as more tangible virtues such as service, community, and philanthropy. These deeply held, widely shared Wake Forest beliefs provide the platform for our Annual Christmas Lovefeast. We continue to frame this uniquely Christian event around these shared values so that the spirit of hospitality becomes a medium for creating bridges across the chasms of our religious differences. Though a Christian service of worship, all are welcome to participate.
And here is our big congrats to the Field Hockey Team for winning the ACC Championship this weekend! They are headed to the NCAA Tournament this Saturday at 2 pm in College Park, MD, taking on Albany (NY). If you live near College Park, put on your best Black and Gold and go support our Lady Deacs in the NCAA Tournament. Coach Jen Averill and her staff have a remarkable record of success, including 3 national championships in the early 2000s. Let’s cheer them on to another!
