The Annual Candlelight Service

On December 9th 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. Join us in singing classic carols with 1,000 of your closest friends. The Parish Choir and Orchestra, will also present classical christmas favorites, and new compositions as well.

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.

Devotion Groups resume for Advent Season

This sessions will run for 2 weeks: This session begins the week of Mon, Dec. 3rd and ends Dec. 17th. To find a group that fits your schedule, head here.

“Devotion Groups” at Calvary ~ St. George's are small groups of parishioners who meet together weekly during specific seasons of the church calendar to devote themselves to Jesus and one another through prayer, scripture reading and a brief Bible study.  They are called “Devotion Groups” because they follow one of the Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families described above in the Book of Common Prayer: morning, noon, early evening or “at close of day." The groups meet for just an hour, and follow a guided and time-tested format. You'll enjoy the brief guided study, engage in group prayer and meet new friends from our parish.  The aim is to keep the time commitment small, but the takeaways large.

Farewell Reception for Rev. Jay Gardner

Farewell Reception for Rev. Jay Gardner

Join us as we say goodbye to The Rev. Jay Gardner, in a special rception following the 11am service at Calvary Church. Jay has been called to be the next rector of Grace Episcopal Church in Cullman, Alabama.

Jay will preach at all the services and, after the 11 A.M. service, we’ll gather in Anderson Hall. If you would like to contribute to the party and/or a farewell gift, please call the church office on 646-723-4178 and speak to Laurel.

Jay, and his wife Paige, came to us in the fall of 2016 from Birmingham, Alabama as a Wisdom Year Student at The General Theological Seminary. Both Jay and Paige fit this parish like an old coat. So in May of 2017, I invited Jay to join our clergy staff and help us continue our strong work with the families of this parish. Hence, many of you have a deep connection with the Gardners. Jay was ordained a presbyter at St. George’s Chapel, the first ordination in the parish since my own in 2006, and in January of 2018, they became a young family and added their son Will to the fold. Jay, Paige, and Will have been a huge blessing to Calvary-St. George’s and so my heart is heavy as we bid them farewell and they begin the next chapter of their ministry.

Jay will preach at all the services and, after the 11 A.M. service, we will have a special reception for him in Anderson Hall. If you would like to contribute to the party and/or a farewell gift, which I am planning, please call the church office on 646-723-4178 and speak to Laurel.

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 on Nov. 28th

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, November 28th at 6:30 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
