About the Event
The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century and has its foundation in the Office of Readings from the Liturgy of the Hours of the Roman Catholic Church. We listen to nine Lessons which recount the Fall, the prophecies concerning the Messiah, the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the hope of his return to establish the eschatological reign of God. Each Lesson is followed by the congegational singing of an Advent hymn.
