[ARCHIVED] The Festival of Lights to Move to All Saints Episcopal Church

Due to the impending rain forecast for December 5, the event will be held at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, 106 W. Church Street. The ceremony will begin at 7 pm in the sanctuary.

Due to the impending rain forecast for December 5, the event will be held at All Saints’ Episcopal Church, 106 W. Church Street. The ceremony will begin at 7 pm in the sanctuary. Guests are invited to enter the building from the Church Street entrance. The change in venue is possible due to the warm generosity of All Saints’ Episcopal Church and Katie Schwartz, church administrator. Sign language interpretation will be provided. This event is free to the public, and is presented by Celebrate Frederick.

The Festival of Lights will showcase the musical talents of the Frederick Children’s Chorus Touring Ensemble under the direction of Artistic Director and founder, Judy DuBose. The chorus will perform two songs, Here We Come A’ Caroling and S’Vivon, and will lead the audience in a sing-along of classic carols. The children performing are part of the full chorus that will host its annual winter concert at St. John the Evangelist Church at 118 East Second Street, on Sunday, December 13, beginning at 7:30 pm.

This year’s program will feature inspirational speaker Karlys Kline, Founder of the Women’s Giving Circle of Frederick County.

The evening will come to an end with a moving candle lighting ceremony, presided over by Mayor Randy McClement. Mayor McClement will light the first candle as the lights inside All Saints’ Episcopal Church are dimmed, and candles will be passed from neighbor to neighbor, until the sanctuary is filled with light.

Special thanks are due to emcee Jim Racheff, Brownie Troop #81741 and students from the Visitation Academy for distributing programs and candles.

Following the program, John Widmann, City Carillonneur, will perform a concert of holiday music on the 49-bell carillon in Baker Park.
