The Candlelight Service – A New York City Tradition

Each year in early December, the Parish of Calvary-St. George’s holds its annual Candlelight Service in celebration of the Christmas season, a tradition in the city of New York for more than 125 years.

Join us on Sunday, December 6, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. for our Candlelight Service at St. George’s Episcopal Church. The prelude begins at 3:40 p.m. The church is located at 4 Rutherford Place on Stuyvesant Park, between 16th and 17th Streets. Admission is free.

Musical Director Kamel Boutros will present a new work at the 2015 service that includes Arabic multi-instrumentalist Zafer Tawli playing Out, Ney and Req. Also performances of John Rutter’s “Gloria,” pieces by Antonin Dvorak, Harry Burleigh, Gustav Holst, jazz arrangements by Alex Nguyen, with plenty of congregational caroling. The entire concert has live sign language for the deaf.
