Public Invited to Traditional English Holiday Event: Lessons and Carols
Central Missourians are invited to join the Westminster College community in celebrating the holidays with a traditional English Festival of Lessons and Carols at 5 p.m., Sunday, Dec.8, in The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury.
Modeled after the community festival held at Cambridge University every year, the service for Lessons and Carols includes the reading of the nine scriptures pertaining to the Christmas story and carols sung and performed by the Westminster college choirs and other area musicians.
Every year Westminster hosts this community worship service to celebrate the birth of Jesus through scriptures and song.
A reception will follow the worship service in the National Churchill Museum.
This special holiday event is sponsored by the Office of Spiritual Life.
