Each year The Northumbria Community celebrates Antiphon Day. The Advent antiphons are ancient prayers traditionally used from 17 to 23 December.
On Antiphon Day (17th December) a pilgrimage walk would be planned, breaking the journey occasionally to say the next of the antiphons in turn, and saying or singing the accompanying verse of the popular Advent hymn, ‘O come, O come, Immanuel’, which is based upon the antiphon prayers.
Even if you cannot physically take part this year, we invite you to join in with this special video, first created in December 2020. You can also find the words of the antiphons in Celtic Daily Prayer Book One – from page 108.
