The Third Advent Candle Lighting - 11/27/16

On Sunday November 27 at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Bethlehem, PA, the third candle of the Advent Season was lit by  Nicholas Hockman and the Sunday School Student verse was read by Elizabeth Hockman.  They are the children of Stacey Hockman and grandchildren of Father James Mason (attached) and Matushka Pat.  The adult scriptural reading was done by Coordinator of Church Sunday School, Pat Grammes.  The third candle is gold to express love.  It is lit to remind us of the great Gift the Lord gave us at Christmas; the gift of His love: Jesus.  The congregation and choir, directed by Reader/Choir Director Nick Lezinsky ended the ceremony by singing, “O Come All Ye Faithful”.
