AT YOUR SERVICE - BOXING DAY 2021
At Your Service
Sunday, December 26th, 2021 - 30 minutes
Celebrating the second day of Christmas in words, music and reflections.
The children of Marown Primary School, assisted by their teacher Mrs Jacqueline Shirtliff, share a selection of poems on different aspects of the Christmas story.
Church leaders - Anglican Bishop Peter and senior priest in the Roman Catholic Church on the Island, Monsignor John Devine - both reflect on celebrating Christmas at the end of a particularly challenging year - and there's great music, too!
As this is the Feast of St Stephen, when good King Wenceslas went out in the winter weather to give alms to a beggar, the hymn celebrating his holy and selfless life is a definite choice today, alongside Hark the Herald Angels Sing, by The Priests, The Candle Song by Graham Kendrick and a Manx translation of The Coventry Carol by Cliogaree Twoaie - and listen out for a little bit of fun at the end, from Joseph Jennings and Santa Claws .....
