We invite you to join us for our annual Advent Christmas Vespers service, offered on Friday, December 8, 2017 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 Vespers “A Branch Shall Grow” 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. In this 500th year of the Reformation, German music will be at the heart of the liturgy.

A reception will be held in the Ballrooms of the Harre Union between the two services.

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. They also 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. You may also request tickets to be held at “will call” at the Chapel for pick up on Dec. 8th. Last day to request tickets for mailing will be Dec. 4.
