About this event

St. Stephen's Episcopal Church will hold our Choral Evensong service on Sunday, May 23rd at 5:00 PM. If you will be attending in-person, please register here. This event will also be live-streamed via Facebook Live. No need to register for the live-stream.

This Evensong will feature the Saint Stephen’s Choir and our Minister of Music, Dr. Alcee Chriss III. This beautiful evening service of prayers and music is a staple of our Anglican heritage and will celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday. In addition to beautiful hymns and anthems, the sanctuary organ will offer exciting voluntaries at the beginning and end of service.

The featured canticles will be the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis of Charles Villiers Stanford. The Anthems will be "Seek Him That Maketh the Seven Stars" by Jonathan Dove and “I Will Sing the Spirit" by John Rutter.

There will be a 25-minute organ recital immediately following the Choral Evensong.

One Eventbrite registration per family. There will be strict rules for safe distancing -- please carefully read the rules and policies below and/or in your ticket confirmation regarding safety precautions.

While we are in a red zone county, registration is required to attend in-person, either indoors or outdoors. If you forget, we will ask you to register when you arrive.
