Lessons and Carols Banner

Sunday, December 17th at 3:00 p.m. in the Chapel

The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century.  In this service, we listen to nine Scripture lessons which recount the Fall, the promise of a Messiah, the Incarnation, and the Great Commission to preach the Good News.  Each lesson is followed by a carol or other song that reflects on the lesson's message and a brief prayer.

Our service in the Chapel will feature the Infant Jesus Adult Choir under the direction of Jennifer Testa and soloist Anna Rosenberg. The readings will be proclaimed by our lectors and teens from the Messengers, the Infant Jesus Youth Group. The 9 Scripture readings, interwoven with hyms and carols will celebrate the Christmas Story.

Please join us for what promises to be a most beautiful and moving expression of the Advent season.
