Lessons & Carols, Dec 1
This Saturday on December 1st, 2018 at 4pm, Fr. Matt Baker will be providing a service in Lessons and Carols. We have our talented musicians who will be playing; such as Laura Giordano, Louie Midura and Anne Franklin. The Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century. It is an essential Christmas tradition for families all over the world. Come and be apart of this beautiful service and let your mind, body and soul be absorbed with Christ.
Service. Dec 8
service will be held on Saturday, December 8 at 6:00 pm at St. Ann's, Amsterdam (37 Division St). A Taizé worship service involves sung and chanted prayers, meditation, a period of silence, liturgical readings, and icons. There is no preaching. The style of prayer practiced at Taizé has attracted many worshipers from around the globe and from many different denominations. The prayers consist of “short chants, repeated again and again,” according to an introduction in a Taizé songbook. “The words are sung over many times.”
