Advent Lessons and Carols

TRUMBULL—The Parish of Saint Catherine of Siena (220 Shelton Road, Trumbull) will host a service of Advent Lessons and Carols on Sunday, December 15 at 4:00pm.

Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century.  In this service, we listen to Scripture lessons which the promise of a Messiah, the Incarnation, and the Great Commission to preach the Good News.  Each lesson is followed by a carol or a choir anthem that reflects on the lesson’s message.

Music for the service will be led by Dr. William Atwood and our Parish Choir, a guest violinist and accompanied by our majestic 4-manual Walker Organ. Carols for the service will be traditional Advent and Christmas hymns such as “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”, “On Jordan’s Bank” and “Lo! He Comes With Clouds Descending”, and “O Come, All Ye Faithful”.

This will be a beautiful experience you won’t want to miss. All are cordially invited to this special event!
