Advent/Christmas service in Tortuga

DESPITE the chilliness of the air at the Tortuga RC Church, it was the performances from the Trinidad and Tobago Youth Philharmonic Orchestra (TTYP) and the Euangelion Singers and Band that made for a pore-raising experience during the church’s Advent/Christmas Carol Service Programme.

The event, held December 17, was hosted by parish priest, Fr Jose Marie and the Shrine Committee. The proceeds will   be   used   for   the   second   restoration   phase   of   the   church’s   building. This   restoration is expected to cost approximately $1 million.

The   evening   began   just   before   6 p.m. with the praying of the Angelus. The lights of the church were switched off as the musicians, all holding lit candles, processed to the strains of the well-known Advent hymn, ‘O Come, O Come Emmanuel’.
