The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century. In this service, we listen to nine Scripture lessons which recount the Fall, the promise of a Messiah, the Incarnation, and the Great Commission to preach the Good News. Each lesson is followed by a carol or other song that reflects on the lesson's message and a brief prayer.
The choir will sing anthems and readers will proclaim the coming of the MESSIAH. Readers are from various ministries of the parish, and the anthems are a reflection of these Advent Lessons.
*I want a HANDBELL ensemble to be a part of this service. So, if you are interested in joining this choir, we will have our FIRST REHEARSAL this coming SUNDAY, December 4, in the Choir Room, Atwill Building, following the 10 a.m. liturgy. (Approx. at 11:30 a.m.) We will work on a single piece, plus some change ringing. Email or call (626 282-5147 ext. 28) the office if you wish to be a member of this ensemble for the Advent service.
