PLEASE NOTE THE SERVICE IS CANCELLED.

Due to security concerns around the current events in Paris, the Cathedral will cancel the Saturday service. However, the Sunday service, scheduled on December 16th at 6pm has been maintained. Please join us for this beloved Cathedral holiday tradition!

Christmas Lessons & Carols, also known as the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a service of Christian worship celebrating the birth of Jesus that is traditionally followed at Christmas. 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.
