Evensong is an ancient practice for modern times. A service of evening prayers, psalms, and canticles, conducted according to a set form, especially that of the Anglican Church.
Together, St. Anselm's and St. Mary's Kerrisdale are collaborating to present three services of choral evensong: Nov.4th, Feb.3rd, and Apr.14th, at 4pm.
We invite you to join us at St. Mary's Kerrisdale (2490 W. 37th Avenue, Vancouver) to bask in the wondrous music, and to experience the ever presence of our gracious God.
Nov.4th will be an All Souls Day Evensong - This season is an opportunity in our Christian Calendar to celebrate the lives of all the faithful departed, including our loved ones. As part of the service, the names of our departed loved ones will be read aloud, and prayers of thanksgiving will be offered to God for their lives.
A reception follows the service.
All are welcome, no previous church experience required.
