Inaugural Advent Carol Service held at St Peter’s Catholic Church, Toorak
To mark the end of a tumultuous year, and the dawn of new beginnings, the members, volunteers, family and friends of the South Eastern Region were invited to attend our inaugural Advent Carols Service that was held on Thursday 17th December at 7pm, in St Peter’s Catholic Church, Toorak.
Our Carols Service reflected the Advent season’s growing anticipation for both the first coming of Christ and of that Day when the prayer “Thy Kingdom come” is finally and fully answered.
Due to the current Victorian Government COVID Restrictions, St. Peter’s Church could only accommodate a congregation of up to 90 people. However the I future years it is hoped that the service will welcome greater congregations.
One of our Chaplains, the Very Rev Joe Caddy AM presided over the service.
Dr Brianna Chesser, who is undertaking her year of preparation to join the Order, led the singing. Brianna has been a Cantor at St Patrick’s Cathedral since 2009 and a member of the Music Ministry team at her parish, St John’s in Heidelberg.
The Service was supported by Mr Daniel Brace, Organist and Music Director at St. Peter’s, Toorak.
