Lessons & Carols and Compline

Our Lady’s music ministry is presenting two events as the Advent season draws to a close. 

Lessons and Carols TONIGHT!

On Friday, December 18 at 7:30 pm, join a quartet of singers and lector Joanna Porreca for Our Lady’s third annual Service of Nine Advent Lessons and Carols. This Anglican tradition dates back to the early 20th century, and features a mix of well-loved Advent and Christmas carols, scripture readings, and some familiar hymns for all to join in singing. This intimate concert is sure to help set the right tone for your final days of Christmas preparation. 

December Compline

And on Sunday, December 20 at 9 pm, join Our Lady’s Compline Trio for the singing of Night Prayer. For the final prayer of the day in the Divine Office, the trio will sing psalms, hymns, and selections from scripture from the Reliquary in the Church Nave, lit only by candles. The service lasts approximately 45 minutes and is the perfect way to end your Sunday in reverence and prayer.
