A new school year at St. John’s University and we always start each new year (and each semester) with a service in Advent Church, attended by the university president and some of the faculty and staff, along with student representatives from each class. Members of the student fellowship sing in a choir formed for the occasion, and also lead the prayers. The service ends with the lighting of candles and the singing of the school song, and procession out of the church. The service was held yesterday afternoon….
A great chance for everyone to come together to commit the new school year to Almighty God and ask for His blessing upon us….
