Advent Lessons & Carols

Join us for a prayerful night of music and scripture:

Friday, December 8, 2017, 7:00 pm

Please join us as we usher in the Advent season at our Lessons & Carols service, a unique night of Scripture and singing, featuring the choirs of Saint Gregory the Great.  Our event will begin at 7:00 pm, followed by fellowship and hospitality in the Parish Hall.

The "Festival of Lessons and Carols" is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century.  In this service, we listen to nine Scripture lessons which recount the Fall, the promise of a Messiah, the Incarnation, and the Great Commission to preach the Good News.  Each lesson is followed by a carol or other song that reflects on the lesson's message and a brief prayer.

Bring a friend and introduce them to the richness and beauty of our catholic faith!
