St. Matthew Church
The combined music ministry from St. Bernard & St. Matthew church invite you to a lovely candlelit Advent Celebration. In this beautiful service, we listen to nine brief Scripture lessons, and the singing of a carol or a song highlights each lesson’s message. You will be singing along to some of your favorite carols. Afterwards plan to stay and enjoy refreshments and fellowship.
The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a traditional liturgy of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century. Each brief scripture reading and reflection is followed by a carol or other song that reflects on the lesson's message and a brief prayer.
Join us, bring the family, and invite the neighbors. A contemplative and hopeful gathering, Lessons and Carols is a beautiful way to prepare for the coming joy of Christmas.
