The St. John’s Chancel Choir and Orchestra will present Mark Hayes’ beautiful Christmas cantata Come to the Manger. This cantata tells the story from the Christ child’s humble birth to the visit of the Wise Men, building to a joyous conclusion shouting the glad news that Jesus Christ is born! This year’s cantata features over 50 musicians. Filled with familiar Christmas carols, a children’s choir will also be featured.

On Christmas Eve we celebrate God being born on earth as a poor Jewish child, whom we call Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. The darkness of the night recalls Calvary, and the candles we light anticipate the candles of Easter, for this infant was born to die and rise for us. With the angels we sing, “Glory to God!”
