Red Wednesday at Calvary Church

Red Wednesday at Calvary Church

Calvary To Be Lit Red In Support of Persecuted Christians

As a call to stand up for religious freedom, Calvary Church will light its outside façade in red from December 20-24, 2017.

The first church in New York City to join the Red Wednesday Campaign, it’s hope is to bring awareness of the persecution of Christians. This symbolic gesture will commence with a worship service on Wednesday, December 20th at 6 PM at the Park Avenue South & 21st Street address. 

Started in 2016, the Red Wednesday Campaign began as a United Kingdom initiative, then spread to other parts of Europe and Brazil. Facades that have been illuminated in red include Westminster Abbey, Westminster Cathedral, Houses of Parliament and Oxford University, all in England. Also lit up have been the Fontana de Trevi in Italy, Sacred Heart Basilica in France and Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil.

“Most people don’t realize that Christians continue to be the most persecuted faith group in the world. We invite all New Yorkers to join us and take a stand for religious freedom,” stated the Rev. Jacob Smith, Rector of Calvary-St. George’s Parish. “And what better color to use than the color red, the Christian color of martyrdom.”

Last year, 215 million Christians experienced high or extreme levels of persecution in the 50 countries where it’s most difficult to openly follow Jesus Christ. These Christians often face beatings, abductions, rape, torture, forced marriages and death.

The Wednesday evening service will take up a collection for the Take Action for Persecuted Christians group sponsored by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The spotlighting of the church will follow the service. All are welcome. #RedWednesday

The Annual Candlelight Service
Dec

The Annual Candlelight Service

This year on December 3rd at 4pm, The Parish of Calvary-St. George’s will host our New York City tradition: A Candlelight Service of Lessons and Carols. The historic St. George’s Church on Stuyvesant Square will once again be the magnificent setting for this service and a gift to our city. St. George’s is a New York City landmark and is also on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and has, for years, stood as a witness to both mission and service in our city. St. George’s tradition of congregational carol singing began in the 19th century, when The Reverend Dr. William S. Rainsford established a Christmas festival in our community.

Many linguists believe the word “carol” derives from the Greek “Kyrie Eleison” (Lord have mercy upon us). Candlelight through lessons & carols gives us a chance to recall the merciful acts of God and reorient our lives to that mercy working through us, loving others as he has loved all of us.

This service will begin at 4:00 p.m., with a prelude at 3:40 p.m. This year we will unveil the newly renovated clock towers and incorporate the new Clarion Chimes into the actual service.

Among the highlights this year: a new choral work sung in Coptic (one of the historic languages of Christians in the Middle East) composed by Kamel Boutros, choral works by the highly acclaimed Norwegian choral composer Ola Gjeilo, and as always, a chance to sing your favorite Christmas carols.
