Vesper/Candlelight Walk: A Church Hill Holiday Tradition
Please join us for Vespers on Friday, December 6th at 7 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church. Following the service, residents and guests of the neighborhood will gather at the back entrance of St. John’s on Grace and 25th streets for a candlelight walk through the neighborhood, led by members of the Richmond Bagpipe Corps. The walk culminates at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument for caroling. Your festivities don’t have to end there. Invite your neighbors for hot beverages, a pot luck dinner or a tree trimming party. It’s a great way to welcome the holiday season.Date: Friday, Dec 6 at 7 p.m.
