Lessons and Carols in Caen


Carol Services have been in full swing across the Diocese. The traditional format of lessons and carols is a unique English tradition at this time of year, and proves to be very popular not only with English-speaking expatriates on the Continent, but also with our ecumenical partners and friends.


Recently in the Anglican Congregation in Caen in Normandy, about 150 people filled the Chapel of the Sisters of La Miséricorde where our normal Sunday service are held. Several clergy who celebrate the eucharist there regularly for our Anglican congregation, Fr Matthew Harrison (St George’s Paris) and Frs John Hughes and Robert Lloyd-Richards, joined in the service, as well as Fr Pavy who represented the Roman Catholic Bishop of Caen, Mgr Jean-Claude Boulanger, and the RC chaplain of the community of the Sisters of La Miséricorde. The excellent music for the service was provided by the choir of St George's Paris.
