A Festival of Lessons & Carols for Advent
December 11, 2016 @ 3:00 pm
Storrs Congregational Church Meeting House
The combined voices of Storrs Congregational Church UCC, St. Mark’s Episcopal Chapel, and St. Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic Chapel will join together observing the rich depth of the pre-Christmas season of Advent, with its themes of waiting and watching, longing and lamenting, trusting and hoping.
Shaped in the traditions of the famous Festival of Lessons and Carols celebrated at King’s College, Cambridge, yet adapted for the season of Advent rather than Christmas Eve, this service includes an amazing tapestry of music, readings from scriptures, and times for prayer and meditation… a great opportunity for a pause of centering and grounding before the pressures of finals week or in the midst of the busyness of the season.
We invite you to share in this wonderful tradition of music and readings and make it a part of your Advent journey!
