The Wonderful Tradition of Lessons & Carols
This Sunday – December 17

Dear Members and Friends of Holy Trinity,

This Sunday, December 17, is the Third Sunday of Advent.  I encourage you to be present at Sunday morning Mass as we watch for Christ’s presence in our midst.

Also, join the wonderful tradition of Lessons and Carols at 5 p.m.  What a thrill to gather in a very crowded church to hear once again the beautiful stories of the Christmas season, to sing carols, and to listen to the stunning music of the Holy Trinity Choir.  (Last Sunday,  331 people were present at Vespers!)

I invite you to listen to the new  Vespers Advent/Christmas podcast by our Cantor Donald Meineke – I hope you enjoy and make sure to share with as many friends and family as possible.

These are such thrilling days at Holy Trinity and nothing could be more thrilling than to see Christ come into our midst in the simple gifts of words and bread and wine.

Do join us!

Blessings to you during these days of Advent,
Pastor Wilbert S. Miller
