Join Us for the Service of Lessons & Carols – December 10th

All are invited to Christ Church on December 10, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. for the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols. The Christmas tradition of Nine Lessons and Carols was instituted by Archbishop Edward Benson at Truro Cathedral in England. It is based on a medieval vigil liturgy. The service has become well known throughout the world as many parishes, chapels, and cathedrals sing their own service of Lessons and Carols each year. To mark the Christmas season, lessons are read by laity and clergy, with carols and hymns sung by the choir and congregation. The scriptures and hymns all combine to express the fulfillment of God’s promise in the good news of great joy for all people, which is the birth of Jesus, who is the Messiah, the Lord. Led by our Christ Church Choir, we will sing in celebration of the Word which came to dwell with us.
