The Candlelight Service at St. George's Church
A New York City Tradition

You’re invited to join the parish of Calvary-St. George's, one of New York’s longest continuously operating Episcopal parishes, for its annual Candlelight Lessons and Carols service on Sunday, December 4, 2016, at 4:00 p.m. 

The parish’s tradition of congregational carol singing began in the 19th century when The Reverend Dr. William S. Rainsford established a Christmas festival for the neighborhood. Though the Candlelight service has taken different forms in the many decades since, it remains a special offering to the community, convening thousands of people to joyfully sing a celebration of Christmas!
