Carols at the Convent – Lagoa

By Paul Luckman, in Good News · 18-12-2020 01:00:00 · 0 Comments

Despite the restrictions of Covid-19 the tradition of singing Christmas Carols at the 350 year old ‘Convento de São Jose’ will continue this Christmas and everyone is welcome.

It will be traditional service of nine lessons and carols, organised by All Saints Anglican Church Lagoa and there is no restriction on singing (but you must wear a mask) so come and sing your heart out.

Everyone is welcome, resident or visitors, and what better way to start the build up to Christmas day. Directions to the Convent are to be found here, http://www.allsaintsalgarve.org/worshiplagoa.htm Sat Nav co-ordinates 37.13703,-8.45355

If you plan to visit it would be helpful if you could call the Lagoa Church Warden, 925 018 902 or email bob.chesters@outlook.com as this helps us to plan seating in accordance with the covid regulations.

On Christmas Eve there will be a midnight Holy Communion service, but at midnight Bethlehem time, 21:00 (9 pm) so you can be safely home well before midnight. The service will last for about one hour and there will be mince pies and mulled wine for those arriving early for the service.

There is plenty of parking around the Convent, turn right just before the arch over the road. Again, it would be helpful if you can let the warden know if you will be joining us, we are very ‘covid conscious’ and wish to ensure everyone has a seat in accordance with the regulations.
