The Christ the King Seminary community invites you to celebrate Advent Sunday Vespers, the Church's Solemn Evening Prayer.

What is Vespers?  This Lord's Day solemn prayer opens with a chanted dialogue and seasonal hymn, then continues with sung psalms and New Testament Canticle. A reading from sacred scripture is followed by a sung "Magnificat", the traditional Canticle of Mary. General intercessions, the Lord's Prayer, closing prayer and final blessing with sung dismissal brings Solemn Vespers to a conclusion.

The chorus is under the direction of Alan D. Lukas, Music Director at the Seminary.  Most Reverend Richard J. Malone, Bishop of the Diocese of Buffalo, will preside.   

A free-will offering will be received and a holiday reception will follow the service.  For more information call the Seminary Music Office at 716-652-6565 or Gayle Angelli, Coordinator of Events and Scheduling at 716-805-1438. All are welcome.
