Lessons and Carols

The tradition of the “Festival of Lessons and Carols” was established in England – as the adaptation of an earlier service – on Christmas Eve, 1918, in the chapel of Kings College, Cambridge University, for the university community and for the City of Cambridge. The Kings College service was first broadcast by radio in 1928; and, excepting the year 1930, these broadcasts have continued (for seventy years internationally) to this day. This wonderful tradition, moreover, has been duplicated in cathedrals and churches throughout America. It is in keeping with this spirit that we celebrate the incarnation of the Lord in this way. 

  • When: 10 to 11 a.m. 
  • Where: Christ Episcopal Church, 426 Mulberry St., Williamsport
