Beginning on Sunday, December 17 and running every evening through December 23, special services of Evening Prayer will be offered. What makes these Advent services special is the focus of them all: the coming of our savior. A set of seven prayers, known as the “O Antiphons” will be offered, one each evening. The Antiphons have been prayed by the Church for centuries, and are best known to modern Christians as the verses of the hymn “O come, o come, Emmanuel.” They are beautiful as they are prayed in words, in music, and in meditation. The O Antiphon services will begin at 6:00 pm each evening, and will likely run around one half-hour.
