The Diocese brings you Advent and Christmas, at home

 The Diocese brings you Advent and Christmas, at home

We are bringing Advent and Christmas to you, at home.

Advent: Bishop Gutiérrez returns to CBS - KYW for Advent services starting tomorrow, 11/29. You can watch at 5:30 a.m. online or on your television; or tune in for the rebroadcast at 9:00 a.m. on our One Love ChannelFacebook or YouTube channels. All services are filmed from The African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas and include youth readers and some singers from the church as well. The first rector of this historic parish, the Rev. Absalom Jones, was also the first black Episcopal priest in the nation.

Christmas Lesson and Carols: On 12/19 at 10 a.m., as part of its covenant with the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, the diocese has organized a live Christmas Lessons and Carols service broadcast simultaneously from Philadelphia and Bethlehem on our One Love and YouTube channels. A joint Episcopal and Lutheran service - officiated by all five Episcopal and Lutheran bishops in Southeast Pennsylvania and Jerusalem - this simulcast service connects us to our sisters and brothers in the Holy Land, hearing familiar carols and readings in both Arabic and English, and with a special Christmas homily from the Archbishop of Jerusalem. 

Christmas Day: On Christmas day, 12/25, our service heads to The Church of the Holy Trinity on Rittenhouse Square, the birthplace of the hymn "O Little Town of Bethlehem," on the CW-Philly at 6:00 a.m., where their youth will also lead the readings. This service is rebroadcast on all of our channels at 8:00 a.m.
