Evening Carols and Worship Service

9:30 p.m. Carols | 10:00 p.m. Festival Eucharist

Christ Episcopal Parish invites all members of our greater Rockville community to usher in Christmas with caroling and holy worship. Carols begin at 9:30 p.m. immediately followed by the start of the worship service at 10 p.m.

This special Christmas Eve service will feature a traditional celebration of the Nativity of the Lord with Holy Eucharist (Rite II). Along with congregational hymns, music will be provided by our choir and festival brass. Please note that incense will be used at this service.

Christ Church welcomes everyone to receive Holy Communion, which we offer in gluten and gluten-free waifers with the wine. If you do not wish to receive communion, you may receive a blessing instead.
