4 p.m. A Christmas Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols online

Modeled on the famous carol service broadcast each Christmas Eve from King’s College, Cambridge, this is our most popular choral service of the year. Ancient prophecies foretelling the coming of a Messiah and the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ birth are illumined by extra-biblical texts, anthems and Christmas carols that have inspired composers, choirs, and worshippers throughout the world and across time. For all who hold the music and message of Christmas dear, this service is a meaningful and joyous way to celebrate Christ’s birth. This year’s service will be held online only, and will also be available to view on the Cathedral website and our Facebook pages after the initial airing.
