Christmas Eve Carols Sing Along

December 24 @ 3:50 pm - 4:30 pm

Arrive early so that you can join in singing your favorite Christmas hymns led by the StJames Schola prior to Christmas Eve Mass! Christmas Carols have a rich tradition within the Church. Though carols were in place during the first few centuries, they fell out of popularity until St. Francis of Assisi revived them in the thirteenth century when he started his nativity plays. In the seventeenth century in England, the powerful Protestants stopped all Christmas singing, however such joy and festivity could not be kept under wraps for long and carols once again became popular in churches and concert halls, reaching their zenith in what is known as a Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.
