Solemn Vespers (Evening Prayer) will be offered on Thursday, 14 September at 6:00 p.m. at the Church of Our Saviour. The Choir of the Church of Our Saviour will sing and the liturgy will be attended by members of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. All are warmly invited to attend.
