St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Choir to present
Festival of Lessons and Carols, Dec. 17
Under the direction of organist and Director of Music, Joe Dizok, the choir of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Gardendale will present the Festival of Lessons and Carols on Sunday, Dec. 17, at 5 p.m. in the church. The public is invited to the service and the reception afterwards, where refreshments will be provided in the Parish Hall.
The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Christian worship celebrating the birth of Jesus. The story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols, hymns and choir music.
The service is a beautiful and moving celebration of the promise of the Messiah and a great way to prepare to receive the Christ Child at Christmas. Everyone is invited to attend. The church is located at 334 Main Street in Gardendale. For more information contact the church office at 205-631-9398.
