From the Rector
Grace and peace. It is almost upon us. Before our next This Week at St. Patrick’s, we will celebrate the Feast of the Nativity with services of joy, love, and peace. I hope to see you at our Sunday service for the 4thSunday of Advent on the 23rdat 10am which will also include the annual greening of the church, the continuation of the Surprise! You’re an Anglican class with Philip Chalk, and the rehearsal for the speaking parts in the Pageant.
On Christmas Eve, we begin with the famous Pageant service for our families with children Grade 6 and younger. Costuming for the kids begins at 4:15pm. All children are encouraged to join the pageant as shepherds, sheep, kings and queens, and angels. The pageant begins at 5pm.
Our traditional Christmas Eve candlelight service begins with a Cantoris Choir concert at 9:30pm. The service will include familiar carols, a Christmas message, and the Holy Eucharist. Afterwards, we will celebrate in the Great Hall around the roaring fire.
On Christmas Day, we will have one service at 10am with congregational singing of carols.
I hope that you will be reminded this week that God is with us.
