Advent Program: Discussion of 2019 Monken Hadley Visit & "Virtual Tea"

Sunday, December 13, 12:30 - 2 PM on ZOOM

In November 2019 our sister church of St. Mary the Virgin in Monken Hadley, North London, celebrated the 525th anniversary of its restoration in 1494. In commemoration the church presented a Gala Son et Lumière 525 Live event combining live action, video, sound and light, culminating in lighting the signal beacon that sits atop the church.

Three of our own parishioners, Durrie Golding, Mary Dierdorff, and Chris Maxfield, attended this festive evening. On Zoom from 12:30 - 1:30 PM they will discuss the show and share highlights and photos from their visit, followed by an informal "Virtual Tea" from 1:30 to 2 PM.

Before the December 13 Zoom call, please click on the links below at any time of your convenience to access videos of the event. Enjoy!
