Mark your calendars for 4:00 p.m., December 11, and bask in the beauty of the cherished Service of Lessons and Carols! In our green-filled church, we read and hear the story of Christ’s coming among us, inter- spersed with carols, hymns, and choir anthems sung by our extraordinary choir. Although this service now seems like an ancient Anglican tradition, in fact it was
“formalized” for a service on Christmas Eve in 1880 by the Bishop of Truro (England). It has been in continual use throughout the world ever since, and we here at St. Michael’s rejoice to celebrate the Nativity of Jesus together in this most anticipated magical service.
