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, the seminary's music director.
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 Mann, Coordinator of Events and Scheduling at (716) 805 1438. All are welcome.
