St. James to have special service Sunday
St. James Episcopal Church of Marshall will celebrate its annual community service of Lessons and Carols at 7 p.m. Sunday at the church, 101 N. 5th St. Marshall.
In past years, the annual service was the Christmas version, but this year the congregation will sing and read the historical Advent Lessons and Carols, directed by Ryan Fox, director of choral activities at Southwest Minnesota State University, and choirmaster and organist at St. James Episcopal Church.
In 1934, 16 years after the more familiar Festival of nine Lessons and Carols for Christmas Eve had been introduced to King's College, Cambridge, England, the dean, Eric Milner-White, composed a further service - a "Procession with Carols upon Advent Sunday."
