Featuring the Our Saviour Choirs, Youth & Children's Choirs and Handbells

 

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.
