Advent Activities: Carols and Wreaths This Weekend

The Annual Service of Advent Lessons and Carols will take place this Sunday, December 3, at 5:00 p.m. This service will feature the music of Palestrina, Herbert Howells, Judith Weir, and Boris Ord, together with some of the great Advent hymns for choir and congregation. A reception, to which all are warmly invited, will follow in the Parish Hall.

This service will be a time of spiritual preparation, as we watch and wait for the coming of the Kingdom of God. Through our experience of sacred Word and music, the story of the coming of Christ gradually unfolds and deepens our understanding of God’s message of love and redemption. The liturgy itself embodies the sense of Advent movement — through the choir’s processions and in the increasingly powerful prophecies and promises of Holy Scripture. Join us!

Our annual Advent Wreathmaking event will also take place this Sunday, December 3 in the Courtyard after the 9:30 a.m. service. Frames, candles, and greenery will be provided by the parish. Please bring gardening shears from home if possible to help cut your branches to size.
