Christmas: A Time of Intense Religious Celebration

On the eighth day of Christmas, the octave of the Nativity, we celebrate the feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord. In the Cathedral of All Saints in Halifax, a service of Holy Eucharist was followed by a New Year's Levy, hosted by our Bishops: Sue and Ron.

St. George's Round Church held a service of Nine Lessons and Carols on Sunday evening, January 2. John of course was playing the organ and the music was beautiful! Festivities continued in the hall with mouth-watering goodies, mulled cider, mulled wine and sherry; lusty carol-singing was accompanied by John's, oft-time jazzy, piano playing. The Eve of the Epiphany was celebrated with Choral Eucharist on Wednesday, January 5th, followed by another feast and parish community time.
