Advent & Christmas at Calvary

Calvary Episcopal Church Christmas Services


Nursery care for children 5 and under will be offered at the 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. worship services.


Christmas Eve at 3:30 p.m.
with Children’s Christmas Pageant

At 3:30 p.m. on Sat., Dec. 24, we will retell the sacred story of Christ’s birth. This lively liturgy is designed for families and children, but all ages are welcome! The St. Cecilia and Boys & Girls Choirs will sing. Nursery care will be offered for children under 5.

No rehearsals are required for pageant participants. Our youth will narrate and perform leadership roles. All Calvary members are invited to portray angels, shepherds, and animals of all kinds. You may create a costume at home, or you may simply come at 3:00 p.m. on pageant day to choose a costume from our supply. Contact jbusby@calvarymemphis.org or jdemarest@calvarymemphis.org with questions.
