The Les Bois Chapter of the American Guild of Organists is having their Annual Downtown Boise Christmas Church Walk. It sounds like a fun way to spend Boxing Day (which is what the rest of the English-speaking world calls the day after Christmas). Here is the info:
“This unique Treasure Valley event will take place on Friday, December 26, 3:00-5:30 p.m. The self-guided walking tour is for the community to be able to look at the Christmas decorations, hear special music and view the various architectural styles of the churches. What makes this event special is that all the churches are within walking distance of each other. The Church Walk will conclude with a Christmas Music Sing from 5:30-6:p.m. at St. John’s Roman Catholic Cathedral featuring the Cathedral Organist, Dr. Raphael Morvant, with Ann Reed as Director.
“The churches are: Central City Christian Church at 615 N. 9th St., First Church of Christ Scientist at 880 W. State St., First Presbyterian Church at 950 W. State St., First United Methodist Church at 717 N. 11th St., Immanuel Lutheran Church at 707 W. Fort St., St. John’s Roman Catholic Cathedral at 775 N. 8th St., St. Michael’s Episcopal Cathedral at 518 N. 8th St. and St. Paul Baptist Church at 1320 W. Bannock St.
“The event is free and open to the public. You are invited to bring your friends and house guests, and the Walk can begin at any of the churches. Specific church information will be available at each church December 26.”
