This downlodable liturgy was originally devised for the HCPT Carol Service held at Northampton’s Cathedral of Our Lady Immaculate & St Thomas of Canterbury in December 2009. It is structured around the lighting of the five candles of the Advent Wreath, with a reading and song and sometimes a reflection or symbolic action at each of the five “stations”.
The recommended music and prayers come from several key resources but you may also adapt the liturgy to include other appropriate songs and prayers if you choose.
- Cloth for the Cradle: Worship resources and readings for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany
- Spirit & Song, Book 2 (Available from Decani Music)
- The Promise CD (Check the 8 Great Advent Songs post for sheet music links)
- Born in Bethlehem CD
