The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Christmas Lessons and Carols

The Cathedral Schola will lead the annual Festival of Nine Christmas Lessons and Carols by Candlelight on Sunday, December 20 at 4 p.m. This service consists of various scriptural readings of the season punctuated by anthems and congregational carols.

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.
