Christmas Eve service
WILTON — St. Luke’s Episcopal Church will host its annual Christmas Eve service at 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 24. The Holy Communion also includes many Christmas carols, and features a chancel drama by noted local actor Michael Cooper. This is a particularly good service for those wanting to experience a Christmas Eve service, but are not familiar with the church. Early arrival is recommended, as the church is usually full at this service.
St. Luke’s will also hold a Christmas Day service on Sunday, Dec. 25, at 9:30 a.m. Sunday’s service will be less formal, a joyful and peaceful beginning for Christmas Day.
St. Luke’s is located at the intersection of School and High streets. For information, call 645-2639.
