the King Seminary will host its annual Advent vespers service on the second
Sunday of Advent, Sunday, Dec. 4, at 4 p.m. in the seminary's St. John Vianney
Chapel. All are welcome.
Reverend Richard J. Malone will preside.
Lukas, director of music for the seminary and the Diocese of Buffalo, will lead
the Christ the King Seminary Festival chorus, made up of seminarians, faculty
and others at the seminary through a selected arrangement of Scripture passages
and sacred songs.
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, a closing
prayer and final blessing with sung dismissal will bring vespers to a conclusion.
A free-will offering will be received and a Christmas
reception will follow the service.
