Advent Lessons & Carols by Candlelight: St. Thomas’ Parish Choir
December 13, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm
Advent, the season in which the Church observes the beginning of her liturgical year, marks the coming of Christ Jesus—not only his first coming at Christmas long ago, but also his second coming at the end of time.
We invite you to join us for this candlelight service as we read the great texts of scripture and sing hymns and carols that reflect on these great mysteries.
