Commemorating St. Francis of Assisi October 4, 2020

The first Sunday of each month—October through May— normally would find several hundred people gathered in the historic St. Paul’s sanctuary as the vesper light filters through the remarkable Tiffany windows.

The Covid-19 Pandemic has compelled us to make certain alterations to that tradition for the moment. Since we are unable to gather in-person, the clergy, musicians, and members of St. Paul’s desire to include you virtually in this revered ritual. Vocal music is provided by the Choral Scholars of St. Paul’s, who maintain the lively tradition of musical excellence for which St. Paul’s continues to be justly famous.

This is the first of eight monthly evensongs. On November 1, we journey virtually to the chapel at Forest Home Cemetery for Choral Evensong on All Saints Day. We return virtually to the sanctuary of St. Paul’s for Advent Evensong on December 6. By all current indicators, Evensong on January 3 and February 7 will be virtual as well. Please join us.
