FESTIVAL OF 9 LESSONS AND CAROLS
The St. Christopher Choral Society will present a Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at the Wesley Chapel, tomorrow evening, December 9, 2013, commencing at 7 0 o’clock.
The Festival of Nine Lessons with Carols was first held on Christmas Eve 1918 at King’s College, Cambridge, England. The Order of Service was revised in 1919, from which time until now, it has always started with the singing of the hymn ‘Once In Royal David’s City.’
The Bidding Prayer and the Blessing at tomorrow’s programme will be done by the Superintendent Minister of the Methodist Church, Rev. Joyce F. Rohan. All are invited to share in this service of Lessons and Carols.
