All Saints Evensong
Parishioners of Grace Church present this joint performance and worship opportunity highlighting two observances of the liturgical season: the Commemoration of All Souls and the Feast of All Saints. Joined by string quartet and harp, the combined choirs of Grace Church offer Gabriel Faure’s tranquil Requiem followed by a traditional Choral Evensong. The
beloved devotional institution of Evensong is considered the summit of choral activities in the Episcopal Church and contributes richly to the treasury of Anglican hymnody, psalmody, canticles and seasonal anthems.


Sunday, January 12 at 4:00 p.m.
A Wintry Mix
Our popular annual Children’s Concert features a narrated performance of Howard Blake’s The Snowman and a sing-along from the hit motion picture, Frozen. A hot chocolate social will follow in the church Undercroft. Bring a pair of mittens, scarf or gloves to donate to the needy.
