All who have attended this candlelight service in past years know what a perfect opportunity it is to step back from the hectic pace of the Christmas season, and take a few moments to contemplate its real meaning. In this time of pandemic, all musical worship services at the Cathedral of St. Philip are pre-recorded and offered online only. We encourage you to tell your friends this year, and invite them to join you virtually... it may be one of the best gifts you give this season. The service will be available for viewing here both at the time of initial airing and afterward, as well as on the Cathedral of St Philip Facebook page and St Philip website.
