Gehlen Catholic's grades 7-12 Vocal Music Department welcomes the community to a Christmas Vespers Service, at 7 p.m. Thursday, in the new St. Joseph's Church in Le Mars.
"Christmas Vespers is a prayerful and musical journey from Advent towards Christ's birth. The Christmas Vespers journey begins in the darkness of Advent," said Terra Goplen, Gehlen 7-12 vocal music drector. "Through music, we will journey to the light that came with Christ on that 'O Holy Night' in Bethlehem."
The Christmas Vespers Service will feature music from the Gehlen Catholic Junior High Choir, High School Concert Choir, and Triple Trio.
The Rev. Kevin Richter will preside. The Rev. Paul Eisele will be the guest conductor.
The Christmas Vespers is free and open to the public.
The service will be rebroadcast on KLEM Radio, Le Mars, during the Christmas holiday weekend.
