On Wednesday, December 4 at 7:00 pm all are invited to a Festival of Lessons and Carols with The Merrimack Schola at Our Mother of Good Counsel Chapel, 2nd Floor, Austin Hall. Don’t miss this first at Merrimack, a truly beautiful event.

Lessons and Carols is a retelling of the Christmas Story - a liturgy of Scripture (Lessons) and Song (Carols). Short Bible readings retell the anticipation and birth of Jesus, combined with familiar Christmas carols for everyone to sing and seasonal choral music sung by a choir.
Based on an order drawn up by the Bishop of Truro in Cornwall, England in 880, Lessons and Carols services have become a tradition at many schools, colleges and churches inspired by the annual service at King’s College, Cambridge University, in Cambridge, England.
