We invite you to join us for our annual Advent Christmas Vespers service, offered on Friday, December 9, 2016 at 7 and 10 p.m. at the Chapel of the Resurrection at Valparaiso University.

The annual service of lessons and carols is a traditional part of Advent celebrations on campus. This year’s “O Antiphon” Vespers will feature music by the Kantorei Choir of the Chapel of the Resurrection, the University Resurrection Ringers handbell choir, and — at the 7 p.m. service only — the Jubilate Choir of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Valparaiso.

A reception will be held at the Ballroom of the Harre Union, adjacent to the Chapel, between the services. All are welcome.

As always, Advent-Christmas Vespers admission is free, but tickets are required. Envelopes, which also serve as tickets for admission, may be picked up at the Chapel, the Helge Center, or at the Harre Union welcome desk beginning Monday, Nov. 7. Also beginning Nov. 7, they may be ordered from the Chapel by phone at 219.464.6517 or via email at chapel@valpo.edu. Requests must specify which service, number of tickets requested, and a mailing address to which tickets should be sent. Last day to request tickets for mailing will be Dec. 5.

The Chapel chancel is bathed in blue and purple lights.
Advent Christmas Vespers will be presented Friday, Dec. 9, at 7 and 10 p.m.
