Saturday Evening: + In the evening, the Young Adult Ministry at St. Mary’s invites you to come for Vespers at 5:00 pm with Bishop JOHN, followed by a concert by the Boston Byzantine Choir at 6:00 entitled The Twelve Days of Christmas, followed by a potluck supper. The concert will consist of Orthodox sacred chant from Christmas to Epiphany (Nativity to Theophany), in English. In this program, the Boston Byzantine Choir will take us on a journey of sacred chant through the 12 Days of Christmas starting with the Nativity and ending with Epiphany. Each day from December 25 to January 6 brings its own hymnography rich in the theology of the season, beautifully expressed through the Byzantine musical tradition. Everyone is invited.
Sunday Morning: His Grace Bishop John will join us to celebrate Hierarchical Divine Liturgy on Sunday, January 7, 2018. It is always a joy and a blessing when His Grace is with us at St. Mary's.
We hope to see you this coming weekend!
