A capacity crowd filled the spacious St. Peter Lutheran Church last Wednesday evening for Stettler’s annual Christmas Carol Fest.
The carol fest is usually held at the Stettler United Church, but with that church undergoing renovations this year, the Lutheran church stepped forward to host.
Each of the seven choirs on the program received rave reviews, as did 12-year-old Jessi Robinson for her outstanding vocal solo.
By all accounts, the evening was enjoyed by many and a successful way to bring the community together to celebrate the joys of the season.
The choir line-up included the Stettler Seniors, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (which included a men’s quartet), the Heartland Belles, St. George’s Anglican Church, Stettler United Church, Stettler Alliance Church and the host St. Peter Lutheran Church.
The Lutheran church’s last number featured saxophone accompaniment by Scott Pfeiffer.
Doug McKay was the organist for the congregational Christmas carols.
St. Peter’s pastor, Karl Faltin, delivered the opening and closing prayers.
