2018 Liturgy Festival

From Contemplation to Celebration

The Power of Words, Music and Silence in
Worship and Prayer

on July 12 - 15, 2018 was a huge success!

We thank the wonderful members of the Downing College Chapel Choir for visiting us in Woodstock and conducting amazing Evensong performances. 

Our Thursday night Evensong brought in a crowd of over 130 people to enjoy the rich singing of this group. On Saturday, the Choir performed at Our Lady of the Snows evening mass. Sunday, July 15 the Choir endured our warm weather to sing at our festive morning Eucharist service and again that evening for another Choral Evensong. Both services were attended by crowds of 70 and more people!
