The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Christmas Lessons and Carols 2018

The Cathedral Schola will lead our annual Festival of Nine Christmas Lessons and Carols by candlelight this Sunday, December 23 at 4 p.m. Biblical readings narrating the prophecy and birth of Jesus are illuminated by congregational carols and choral music of the Christmas season.

Our festival is modeled on the famous worship service at King’s College, Cambridge, which has become popular worldwide since World War II through annual radio broadcasts on Christmas Eve. Whether you best sense the Eternal through beautiful choral music or popular carols sung by all, this service holds something for everyone.

Amid the frenetic pace of the Christmas season, this is a perfect opportunity to take a few moments to step back to contemplate and enjoy its real meaning.
