Celtic Vespers at St. James’, Glastonbury

November 13 @ 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Free

St. James’ in Glastonbury will present Celtic Vespers on Sunday, November 13 at 7:30 PM. The traditional candlelight service includes prayers and readings reflecting nature and the presence of God. The service embraces traditions of Ireland, Scotland, England, and Wales, all in a reflective setting.

Wild Notes will perform, a group known for their energetic and exuberant traditional acoustic music with roots in Irish, Scottish, French-Canadian and classical. Instruments include Celtic harp, concertina, accordion, fiddle, and flute, performed by Kasha Breau, John Kalinowski, and Mickey Koth. A choir of women will sing the Irish hymn, Be thou my vision, and a Celtic chant, Tar a thighhearna.

The Rev. Donald H. Hamer, Priest Associate, will be the officiant. Fr. Hamer recently returned from a retreat at the Iona Community in Scotland, a place rich in Celtic heritage, both ancient and modern.

Celtic Vespers is open to the public and all are invited to attend. The service is offered without admission fee or offering, and will be held at St. James’ Episcopal Church, 2584 Main Street, Glastonbury. For additional information, please visit www.stjamesglastonbury.org or contact the church office at (860) 633-8333.
