Advent Lessons and Carols
The Episcopal Church of the Atonement in Westfield will host a service of Advent Lessons and Carols on Sunday Dec. 15th at 4:00pm. The service will be presented by the church's Choral Scholars as well as alumni of the Choral Scholars program. The service will present nine readings from the prophetic texts from scripture which tell of the coming of Christ into the world. The service serves as a quiet reflection on waiting and preparing amid the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season. The Choral Scholars program invites students from Westfield State University to participate in the music programs at the church. Here, they gain professional experience in church music and liturgy as well as engaging in the wider community. The current Choral Scholars will be joined by alumni of the program, now in its sixth year.
The Episcopal Church of the Atonement is located at 36 Court Street in Westfield, MA. The church is handicapped accessible. A freewill offering will be taken to benefit the Choral Scholars program at the church. For more information, contact the church at music@atonementwestfield or (413) 562-5461.
