Choral Evensong 4 p.m., Sunday, November 18
Choral Evensong is one of the liturgical treasures of our Anglican/Episcopal tradition. Some of the most beautiful choral music ever written was composed specifically for Evensong. Join us on Nov. 18 as our Adult Choir offers Evensong, singing the music of John West, Charles Wood, William Byrd, and others. The anthem will be Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s sublime setting of the Beatitudes, from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, as found in Matthew 5:3-12. Pärt’s setting of this text, which is enormously important to Christians, was premiered in 1990 in Berlin.
Although nearly all of the Evensong liturgy is sung by the choir, the congregation participates fully by being present as the choir sings prayers, psalms and canticles on behalf of everyone.
If there’s an R in the month, that means oysters are on the menu, and the Men’s Ministry plans to make sure you enjoy some. Plan now to shuck a few and peel some shrimp at the annual Men’s Ministry Oyster Roast, Friday, Nov. 16, 6:30 p.m. -10 p.m.
Tickets are still available and are $40 per person. You may pay at the door!

"Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”
