The Subiaco Schola Cantorum and Chorus will present a Festival of Lessons and Carols on Sunday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. in St. Benedict Abbey Church. The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a worship service celebrating the birth of Jesus.
The story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols, hymns and choir music.
The public is invited to join the Subiaco Abbey and Academy community in this traditional worship service.
