Choral Evensong for Candlemas

Choral Evensong
Candlemas Day
Sunday, February 2rd, 2020
N.B.: 4:00 PM

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 4:00 PM and ordinarily lasts about 40 minutes.

Please note that this month’s service begins at the earlier time of 4:00 PM.

This month’s candlelight service bids a fond farewell to Christmastide by relating the final chapter in the Christmas story: the Presentation of Christ in the Temple and the Purification of Saint Mary the Virgin. For more information, visit us online:

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.
