During this season of Advent, we invite you to join us for worship and fellowship at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Here on our website we share details about our Parish Life, Music program, Sunday School, Outreach, and How to Find Us, all of which can be accessed using the links above. St. Paul's Carroll St. is a diverse Anglo-Catholic parish where neighborhood people have gathered to serve God since 1849. We hope to see you soon!
This Sunday, November 30th, marks the first Sunday of Advent.
Mass begins at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday with the Great Litany in Procession. The first of the Advent wreath's four candles is lit, and our expectant preparation of the Christmas feast begins. The liturgical color for the season is purple.
This Sunday also marks the final day of our November food drive, collecting food to help stock the shelves of the First Presbyterian Church food pantry. You can bring in non-perishable food and deposit it in the baskets at the rear of the church.
During the first three weeks of Advent, we will be collecting new books for children ages 6 through 18. These books will be wrapped and given to children in Red Hook at Christmas.
Second Annual Sing-it-Yourself Messiah
At four o'clock on Sunday, December 21st, you and your friends and families are invited to join us as we once again sing the Christmas sections of Handel's Messiah. Vince Peterson has assembled another fine orchestra and rounded up a group of excellent soloists. All we need is you to help us sing the choruses. What better way to prepare for Christmas than to join in such a joyous occasion?
This year, Vince is offering two special bonuses! For those who would like to review the score and practice some of the trickier moments, Vince is offering a review of the cross-section of difficult singing spots, some insights, tricks, and free singing tips, right before the concert from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. In addition, have you ever wanted to lead the orchestra? Before the performance, Vince will be auctioning off his baton for the final Hallelujah Chorus! Look for the Silent Auction sheet posted at the back of the church.
Tickets will be available at the door, but you can purchase them in advance at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/969490
