As you prepare for the Christmas season, join St. Peter’s Choir of Boys, Girls and Adults for an Advent Festival of Lessons and Carols. “Advent” comes from the Latin word for “coming” and the season of Advent, which spans the four weeks before Christmas day, is a time of preparation and expectation for the celebration of Jesus’ birth. During the service, you’ll have an opportunity to escape from the commercial side of Christmas and immerse yourself in beautiful readings and music that help deepen our understanding of God’s message of love and redemption in the birth of Jesus Christ.
The service, which will be broadcast on St. Peter’s Facebook page, includes lessons and prayers focusing on the history of our salvation, beginning with the creation story and concluding with an announcement of Christ’s coming birth. Music sung by St. Peter’s Choir of Boys, Girls and Adults and the congregation alternates with corresponding lessons in the candlelit space of St. Peter’s Church.
