St. James Cathedral presents our annual Service of Readings and Carols. In the soft glow of candlelight, readings from Holy Scripture tell of the coming of Christ’s birth while Cathedral musicians perform music for the Advent season, illuminating and elevating the story. Join the combined adult and youth choirs of the Cathedral (Cathedral Choir, Women’s Schola, Jubilate Young Women’s Ensemble, and Schola Cantorum), and the Cathedral Brass (including musicians from Seattle Symphony and Pacific Northwest Ballet) to proclaim the coming of the Savior. The Very Reverend Michael G. Ryan, presider.
This liturgy is open to all; a freewill offering will be accepted.
