Passion Vespers
5 PM
On Palm Sunday afternoon the Choir of the Church of St. Michael & St. George will sing a service of Passion Vespers. This liturgy, akin to the Christmastide services of Lessons and Carols, is a service of exceptional beauty that couples the spoken word with poignant seasonal music. The readings are selected from Scripture, the ancient Church Fathers, and modern-day poets and are interspersed with music, sung by the Choir to illuminate the texts. This is a meaningful way to begin the solemnities of Holy Week, and all are cordially encouraged and welcome to attend.

All liturgies and a full-length notice may be downloaded from our website, www.csmsg.org. Go to service leaflets  or "This Sunday" to download the pdf files for the liturgy and notices. A condensed printed version of the Sunday leaflet and notices will be available at all services.
