To all Parish Secretaries from the Dean and Chapter of Blackburn Cathedral

‘From Darkness to Light’

advent carol service – sunday december 3rd  2017 at 6.30pm

As the new Dean, I am writing on behalf of the Chapter to invite your Parish to the Advent Carol Service at the Cathedral.

The Advent Carol Service is an example of the very best in liturgical drama, moving from darkness to light through the great space which is our cathedral. It seeks to reflect the great Advent themes of hope and expectation which precede our celebration of Christmas.

The service will, as usual, include music sung in procession by the Cathedral Choir, the Cathedral Girls’ Choir and the Young People’s Choir. There will also be the opportunity for all to join in those traditional Advent hymns which sound so powerful in the midst of a great congregation. This is one of the ways in which we can serve parishes and individuals by giving them a powerful experience of worship which is not easy to replicate in a parish church.

I do hope that you will be able to come with your parish group. In terms of planning transport, you need to be here by 6.10pm and the service will last about 1 hour 20 minutes. Unfortunately, it is impossible for us to provide parking facilities in the Cathedral grounds, apart from a very limited number of spaces for disabled drivers.

Please fill in the slip below and return it to the Cathedral Events Co-ordinator, Philip Hunwick, by Friday, 17th November 2017 – sooner if you can. We look forward to seeing you on the 3rd December.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

The Very Revd. Peter Howell-Jones

Dean of Blackburn
