NOVEMBER 26 - ADVENT CAROLS

An Advent Candlelight Procession with Carols will take place at St. George's Cathedral on Sunday November 26 at 5pm. As well as leading the congregational singing, the Cathedral Adult, Teen, and Children's Choirs will sing a selection of Advent anthems. The Cathedral is at 270 King St. E. (at Johnson) in Kingston. Call 613-548-4617 or visit www.stgeorgescathedral.ca.  Join us as we celebrate the beginning of the Advent season!

The service symbolizes the journey from Advent to Christmas, from the Old Testament to the New, from darkness to light. Beginning in darkness, candles are gradually lit as the choir travels through the sanctuary, singing in different locations, until the building is filled with light and music.


DECEMBER 17 - CHRISTMAS LESSONS AND CAROLS

A Service of Christmas Lessons and Carols will take place at St. George's Cathedral on Sunday December 17 at the new time of 4pm. As well as leading the congregation in singing favourite Christmas carols, the Cathedral Christmas Choir and Children's Choir will sing a selection of Christmas anthems by G.F. Handel, Andrew Carter, Peter Philips, John Joubert, Gustav Holst, Harold Friedell, and others. Join us as we celebrate the Christmas season!
