Choral Evensong for Ascension Sunday

Sunday, June 2nd, 2019 at 6:00 PM

Saint Stephen’s Choir of Men and Boys cordially invites to you to attend their final Choral Evensong of the academic year.

Evensong, a fusion of the monastic prayer offices Vespers and Compline, is one of the greatest treasures of the Anglican tradition. Presented by Saint Stephen’s Choir of Men & Boys on the First Sunday of the month, the service begins at 6:00 PM and ordinarily lasts about 40 minutes.

The service will feature David Hogan’s “Washington” Service, the Bach/Harris “King of glory, King of peace”, and Gerre Hancock’s Preces and Responses. For more details, see evensong.ststeve.com.

Visitors of all faiths are always heartily welcomed to join us in prayer, and all are invited to remain for a light wine & cheese reception following the service. Admission is free of charge, however a freewill offering will be received in aid of the choir’s charity, the Christ Child Society of Baltimore.
