Advent Lessons and Carols 2016





















Sunday, December 4, 2016, 6:00 p.m.


Modeled after the famous service of Darkness in Light created at Salisbury Cathedral, this liturgy for Advent leads us through the prophecies of redemption, with scripture and music sung by Redeemer’s choirs.  


There is no charge to attend this liturgy, which will be followed by a reception in the Parish Hall. Special thanks for the Friends of Music at Redeemer for making it possible.
