The annual Ceremony of Nine Lessons and Carols will be celebrated on December 18, 2011 at 5:00 pm. This is a tradition at St. Cyprian’s that reflects another side of the rich musical and worship traditions of the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. Everyone is welcome to come and take part in this wonderful celebration of the Advent and Christmas seasons.
