St. Thomas’ Cathedral Women’s Fellowship Advent Service was held on 27th November 2016 during Evensong with Holy Communion Service at 5.30 PM.
ADVENT Sunday is the beginning of the Christian Calendar and the Season of Advent. It is a penitential season, therefore the colour is either purple or Violet. It covers the four Sundays leading up to Christmas. It is a solemn season when the Church’s teaching reminds us of the second coming of Jesus as our Judge.
The preacher was The Rev’d Canon Gregory Chambers and the celebrant was The Rev’d Kenny Tan.
Led by the Fellowship Chairwoman, Mdm. Betty Munji, the Service commenced with the lighting of one of the Four Advent Candles and readings from the Scriptures by three of its members.
Women Fellowship members also assisted in the collection from the congregation during the Service.
After the Service, the Fellowship members together with members of the PCC led by its Chairman, the Very Revd. Michael Buma Galami,The Rev’d Canon Michael Spencer Woods, The Rev’d Canon Gregory Chambers, Rev’d Kenny Tan, Rev’d Leslie Keyu and Rev’d Doyle Owen LaCasse joined in the Pot Blessed dinner and singing Praise and Worship to our Lord at the Parish Hall. The Rev’d Canon Michael Wood was invited to say the Grace before the food was served.
