Christmas Eve at Holy Trinity

I. The evening of the 24th will begin with mulled cider and hot chocolate,
tamales, and whatever other finger food is part of your tradition
between 8:30 and 9:00 (instead of AFTER the service). There will also
be a craft station for children to make lanterns that will be used in
the procession at the beginning of the service. If anyone wants to
help either with food or paper-bag lanterns, please contact me

shesselgrave@holytrinitytoronto.org

II. From 9:00 to 9:30 there will be carol singing in both English and
Spanish. If you have a favorite carol or two, please contact Becca
Whitla at:

bwhitla@holytrinitytoronto.org

III. The service proper begins at 9:30 with the children knocking on
entrances, like Joseph and Mary seeking room in an inn, and being
turned away at two doors before being invited in (the Posada tradition
from Mexico).

IV. The sermon will be a multimedia presentation of Julia Esquivel’s
poem, Those Who Saw the Star, read in both Spanish and English and
accompanied by projected images.

Feel free to invite friends, and if you know of anyone who lives
alone, please make a special effort to invite them to what is going to
be a wonderful and special evening. The service should end before
11:00.
