Lessons & Carols this Thurs. 19 @ 7pm

20111028-121557.jpgOur annual Nine Lessons & Carols service is to be held this coming Thursday, December 19,  at 7:00 p.m. Our parish choir has prepared three special anthems and we have picked our favourite Christmas Carols to sing. Hot Chocolate will be served for the young and old following the service.

The nine lessons is a traditional Anglican way to  tell the story of our worlds need for the Messiah and the story of His coming. Come and sing along with the carols and hear the story of the true reason we celebrate this time of year!
