The Festival of Carols was back after a two-year break due to Covid, and the church community appreciated the opportunity to gather in person again. A good crowd was in attendance at the Opera House on Sunday evening, Dec. 4th during the Advent season.
As everyone arrived, the hall was filled with the beautiful sounds of Viva Voce - Tracy Sanders on piano and four of her children on string instruments.
Al Thorleifson was MC for the evening.
Musical selections from each of the local church congregations was interspersed with Bible readings and the crowd joining together for carol singing.
The offering was designated for the Pembina Manitou Christmas Cheer Program, along with the non-perishable food donations.
It was a wonderful way to usher in the Christmas season.
