CONTINUING DEACON FORMATION 2013-2014
Candlelight Vespers Service
On Thursday, December 19, at 7:00 PM, the Choir of Church of the Holy Child and The Mastersingers of Archmere Academy, with full orchestra accompaniment, will present their annual Candlelight Vespers at Church of the Holy Child. The Vespers Service is a combination of evening prayer from the Roman Catholic tradition and the Traditional Vespers Service of the MoravianChurch. The music has been carefully selected and arranged to prayerfully bring the message of Advent-Christmas alive in our hearts. The Service ends with a candlelight service from the traditions of the MoravianChurch. It originated in Manenborn, Germanyin 1747 and was first celebrated in the United States on Christmas Eve in Bethlehem, Pennsylvaniain 1756.
You are invited to join parishioners and the local community as we continue our Advent journey to Christmas.
