Christmas Day - Solemn High Mass and Sung Evensong

Christmas Day was quite a contrast at St. George’s Round Church in Halifax. This worshipping community uses the BCP exclusively and Christmas morning was celebrated with a solemn high mass. We returned in the evening for a sung evensong.

The four churches in Western Shore each have their own worship style and individual celebration of the mystery. St. George’s is completely different with its high church mystical ritual. Music is central at St. George’s and while they included a string quartet in their Christmas Eve midnight mass, the band from St. Mark’s would be out of place, as would the screen and projector!
