St. Paul's Episcopal Church
815 E. Grace St

All are welcome to join us in-person or online on Sunday, December 5 at 5:00 p.m., as the St. Paul’s Choir presents a service of Advent Lessons and Carols. The Service of Lessons and Carols for Advent was originally celebrated at King’s College, Cambridge, which has been popular worldwide since World War II through annual radio broadcasts on Christmas Eve. The order of service includes old liturgical forms that vividly express the Church’s preparation for the coming of the Lord Jesus both in the festival of Christmas and in the consummation of the ages. The service alternates lessons from the Old and the New Testaments with anthems and carols, finally climaxing in St. Luke’s Gospel, in which the angel brings the news that Mary will bring forth a son, “and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” The St. Paul’s choir will be presenting works by Philip Ledger, Jessica Nelson, Mark Sirett, Philip Stopford, Howard Helvey, and Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.

Join us for a virtual Friendsgiving!

Friendsgiving is a time to share a meal with one another, and this year, in particular, a time to meet new folks and share how you are doing. Since we will be meeting over Zoom, we will be sharing our meal virtually and St. Paul’s would like to help pay for your meal ($20/ person). You can order delivery, pick up your favorite local meal or grab something delicious from your fridge.

Please REGISTER HERE and let Keli Shipley Cooper know if you have any questions.

**A “youngish adult” is loosely defined as someone in their 20s-40s.
