Special Services

The Candlelight Carols Service at St. Paul's Brookline serves as a vessel, a means to help us return to this most remarkable story of God’s coming among us as a child in Bethlehem.  At this time of darkness in Advent, our hope is that you will come join us to listen and sing aAnnd ponder anew the possibilities of a promise of light penetrating into even the deepest and most relentless darkness.  Come and open yourself, bring your children, and approach the wonder of Christmas, in all of its hope and love.
