Evensong at St. James: Vespers for Peace

Sunday 24 September 2017
4:30pm | freewill offering
International Day of Peace on September 21, organized by the United Nations, is “a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.” We gather a few days later in a service of evening prayer to ask for peace, sing an ancient liturgy, and hear the music of English composers Thomas Tallis, William Byrd, Orlando Gibbons, and Ralph Vaughan Williams. The gathered assembly will have many opportunities to join in the singing. Childcare provided. Reception to follow.
