A 2023 Holiday Season!
We’ll gather in our vestry on Christmas Eve morning for a live recording of A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from Kings College Chapel at Cambridge University. Come together with others to enjoy music and inspiration. Hot beverages and donuts will be served! Led by Worship Associate David Whitford.
The Christmas Eve services, a highlight of the season, occur twice due to the number of people attending. The services feature the lighting of candles, organ fanfares and children reading the ancient tale. Rev. Erica Richmond offers a homily.
