O Antiphons Advent worship service Sunday, December 19 at 6 pm.

This Advent season, instead of a Lessons and Carols service, we plan to hold a service of reflection on the O Antiphons. The O Antiphons are ancient prayers that likely date to sixth-century Italy that were composed for use in evening prayer services on the last seven days of Advent. They are best known to us as the seven verses of the advent hymn, “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.” Our service will feature visual artwork created by COS artists and poetry or spoken reflections for each antiphon. The service will also include scripture, prayer, music, and time for silent meditation.
