Lessons and Carols Available Virtually

This year's Lessons and Carols service is available in a virtual, prerecorded format.
While we may not be able to gather together as a community, we are still able to prepare for the coming of Christmas together.

Lessons and Carols was first celebrated at King's College, Cambridge on Christmas Eve, 1918. It was an adaptation of a similar service that had been written for the cathedral at Truro in 1880. The lessons were reordered in 1919, and have remained the same ever since.
 
At King's College, this is a Christmas Eve service. Many other parishes have adopted the tradition, occasionally modifying it as needed. The story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings or lessons from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols, hymns, and choir anthems.
 
At Casady School, Lessons and Carols is held annually and serves to prepare our community for the coming of Christ's birth on Christmas Day.
