Advent Lessons & Carols

On the Third Sunday of Advent, Saint Luke’s in Washington DC, a personal parish of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter, hosted its annual service of Lessons and Carols for Advent. The regular professional parish choir sang motets  spanning the musical patrimony of the Catholic and Anglican traditions.

"As we prepare our hearts for the coming of our Lord, it is our hope this video of our service of Lessons and Carols will draw you deeper into the mystery of God's saving love."
