Join us for a very special evening concert celebrating the joy of Christmas and the diversity of musical traditions honouring the Incarnation of God the Word in our historic Cathedral. Come be lifted into the miracle of Christmas by hearing centuries-old hymns, festive carols, and modern praises from various parts of our world. Come celebrate with us the richness of diversity under them gleaming mosaic dome of our place of worship. Be taken back into time by the Byzantine chanting and be uplifted by the fragrant incense. Get a glimpse how it was like centuries ago yet while presently enjoying how wonderful it is for the community to dwell together in unity. Enjoy the sense of fellowship, solidarity, and celebration by the culmination of Byzantine, European, and Gospel musical traditions, while pondering on the miracle of the Nativity of Christ. Celebrate the fact, “that God became man, so that man may become god”. Above all, spend your evening with us in prayer and in the spirit of deep gratitude and heart-warming charity as we celebrate this Season of Giving.
