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.
