The Royal Hours of Christmas

Join us at Saint Elizabeth Friday at 10:00 am to celebrate the majestic service of the Royal Hours of Christmas!

Prepare, O Bethlehem,
For Eden has been opened to all.
Adorn yourself, O Ephratha,
For the Tree of Life blossoms forth from the Virgin in the cave.
Her womb is a spiritual paradise planted with the fruit divine;
If we eat of it, we shall live forever and not die like Adam.
Christ is coming to restore the image which He made in the beginning.

--Hymn of the Prefeast of Christmas
