Calling all parishioners, children and alumni- we need YOU!

On Christmas Eve 2020 we would like to all “come together” and bring each other some tidings of (much-needed) comfort and joy, in our COS Together at Christmas celebration. This event will be streamed to our community around the world and will include live and virtual Christmas performances by our choirs- and by YOU, our COS community! 

You can join in with this event in two ways:

Send us your drawings on the theme of Christmas, or any good quality photo of you/your family! We will feature all your drawings & photos as part of our COS Together at Christmas celebration.

Read further for more details.

Send us a video of you singing along to the traditional, heart-lifting Christmas carol “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing” and you will become a part of COS’s first virtual Christmas community choir!
