St. Francis’ Episcopal Church would like to invite the public to their annual service of Lessons and Carols on Saturday December 10 at 6:00 pm.
Lessons and Carols is a service of Christian worship celebrating the birth of Jesus using readings from the Bible interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols and hymns that reflect on the lesson’s message. The service is adapted from the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols that has been celebrated annually at King’s College, Cambridge since the late 1800’s. Refreshments will be served after the service.
