Sunday, December 20, 2020.
Join our St. David’s Choir and Virtual Singers, as they sing anthems and hymns with choirs, readers, and instrumentalists from around the world in a splendid 2020 debut Lessons and Carols Service, virtually broadcast from London on Sunday, December 20th, 5 pm EST.
Here is the link to our Order of Service
It includes all carols and readings and as a result, it is quite a long document. You may wish to use a tablet rather than printing it out. It is recommended that you listen to this Service of Lessons and Carols using headphones, for best audio fidelity. Please note, the only video content is Ben England, conductor, the choir, and the extracts from Messiah. The children, Recordare Soloists, the Readings, and soloists are audio-only.

We are blessed to have a strong group of candidates this year who have volunteered to serve on the Vestry during this very special time at St. David's.
Good News! The Diocese has given the Nominating Committee the flexibility to resume the search for our next Rector. The Committee feels that we can proceed under the new guidelines from the Diocese and appreciates the opportunity to resume where we left off last spring.
