At Calvary-St. George's we have a strong family & youth program that extends through the Christmas season. Take a look at our offerings below and we hope to see you at any of our family events! If you have any questions or would like to RSVP to any of the events, please e-mail Miss Jackie Jones at


The Annual Candlelight

Join us at St. George’s Church (7 Rutherford Place) at 4:00pm for a beautiful service of Lessons & Carols that has been part of our community on Stuyvesant Square Park for over 120 years. Last year’s attendance was the highest ever at 901 people, but we anticipate many more friends of the neighborhood will come along this December for the anticipated and momentous unveiling of  the newly renovated clock towers at Stuyvesant Square, with Clarion Chimes incorporated  into the service!

Additional highlights include: a new choral work sung in coptic (one of the historic languages of Christians in the Middle East), works by the highly acclaimed Norwegian choral composer Ola Gjeilo, and as always, a chance to sing your favorite Christmas carols.

Under the direction of Kamel Boutros and Alex Nguyen, the parish choirs and orchestras will perform musical settings by Antonín Dvořák, Harry Burleigh, Daniel Taylor, John Rutter,  Benjamin Britten,  and others,  with plenty of congregational caroling binding the service together. And the exceptional young musicians of the Calvary-St. George Music Academy will perform “Mary! Did you know” with soloist Aliah Sheffield.
