Celebration in 4 languages

Entangled States blog reports on a joyfilled Advent 4 service held in 4 languages in Phoenix:

Members of the Sudanese congregation lead the processional with singing and dancing accompanied by the sound of pounding drums. They also offered music during the offertory and the recessional. Mariachis provided most of the additional service music.

The Rev. Anderia Arok of St. Paul’s gave the sermon while The Rev. Canon Carmen Guerrero of Catedral de la Trinidad translated his Dinka-accented English into Spanish – which lead to a little confusion and a few laughs at times.

The Rev. Canon Licia Baldi Affer of Trinity Cathedral celebrated the Eucharist and offered the Bendición in her native Italian.
