All are invited to Grace-St. Luke’s at 5:30 p.m. on Sundays, February 9, April 26, and May 17 to experience one of the richest services of Anglican/Episcopal heritage: Choral Evensong. Evensong is The Book of Common Prayer’s service of Evening Prayer (from the Daily Office) led by a choir with assistance from other lay ministers and a member of the clergy. The 45-minute service is an intentional time to come away from the busy-ness of life to meditate on scripture and to spend time in quiet prayer, while listening to and participating in music (congregational hymns). The music selected for choir and congregation seeks to bring worshippers into deeper understanding of the mysteries of faith. During the retiring procession of the choir, worshippers wishing to stay for a 15-minute spoken Holy Eucharist (Communion) will be invited to move closer to the altar and be seated in either the choir pews or front pews of the nave. Services will be led by clergy and various ensembles: February 9, The Grace-St. Luke’s Choir; April 26, Grace-St. Luke’s Canterbury (Children’s) Choir and Calvary Church’s Boys and Girls Choir; and May 17, The Grace-St. Luke’s Choir. If you are an evensong fan, spread the word, and bring others. If evensong will be a new experience, you are in for a treat and might find this article interesting, “The Atheist’s Favorite Service: The Wonder of Choral Evensong.”
