On December 2, 2018 at 7:30 pm, the Basilica Choir of St. John the Baptist celebrates their 22nd annual Advent Festival.

The Basilica Choir, conductor Kiera Galway, accompanist Patty Fowler and special guest ensemble “Close Quarters” will gather on December 2, 2018, for an ecumenical candlelight service at 7:30 p.m. at the Basilica of St. John the Baptist.

This celebration features instrumentalists from the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra, Memorial University and soloists from the Basilica Choir. Animateur Jacinta Mackey-Graham will bring scripture reflections to life, and representatives of various Christian faith traditions in St. John’s will proclaim selections from scripture.

Proceeds from the Advent Festival will go to support Emmaus House, a food bank servicing the greater downtown St. John’s area. The Basilica Choir gratefully acknowledges the sponsorship of Coleman’s in helping make this event a reality.

All are invited to attend this special event. Reception to follow in the Basilica side galleries.
