Worship, music and learning inspired by Celtic music, prayers and traditions

The fourth Sunday of almost every month at 7:00 p.m., St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church welcomes everyone — from parishioners to local residents, college students, retirees, and visitors to N. Georgia — to a 45-minute Celtic Worship Service in Dahlonega. The casual, contemplative service features live musicians playing Celtic and traditional Appalachian music, readings of the Psalms, a meditative lighting of the candles, a brief reflection and friendly hospitality afterward. The service is behind the church in the garden, weather permitting. On rainy, cold or sweltering evenings, we are inside with low lighting and many candles.

We gather fourth Sundays from January through October at 7:00 p.m. We also gather once in December. We plan to be in the garden behind the church. If it’s rainy or excessively hot or cold, we’ll be inside. Watch the Weekly E-News for more details. We look forward to seeing you!

Dates for Celtic Vespers in 2023 are: Jan. 22, Feb. 26, Mar. 26, Apr. 23, May 28, June 25, July 23, Aug 27, Sep. 24, Oct. 22 & Dec. 3
