Doors Open for the 4pm ServiceAdd to My Calendar
Monday, December 24, 2018
3:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Fifth Avenue Doors
Lessons and Carols is popular each year, and it is possible the church may fill up. The Fifth Avenue doors open at 3pm and seats are available on a first-come basis. Depending on the weather, people may begin lining up at the Fifth Avenue doors before 3pm. In past years, the line has begun to form around 2:30pm.
It is possible that the doors may need to be closed before 4pm, when the service begins. This will occur if the church fills to capacity. There is no way we can know in advance how many people will come, or at what time the church will fill.
We welcome everyone who wants to worship at Saint Thomas this Christmas. If you are concerned about the lines or crowds on Christmas Eve, consider attending Christmas Day at 11am. Like the 11pm Christmas Eve service, the Christmas Day service is sung by the Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys.
Please also note that the 4pm service on Christmas Eve does not include a Mass, so if you wish to make your Holy Communion, you should come on Christmas Eve at 11pm or Christmas Day at 11am.
