Vespers is the Lord's Day solemn prayer which opens with a chanted dialogue and seasonal hymn, and 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 Seminary Chorus will be under the direction of Alan D. Lukas, Music Director at the seminary. 

A holiday reception will follow the service.  All are welcome.
