St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church Music Ministry presents a free Christmas concert on Friday, Dec. 6, at 7 pm for the Advent and Christmas season. This concert is a service of Scripture and song entitled A Festival of Lessons and Carols.
The tradition of this service dates to the late 19th century. The audience will listen to nine Scripture lessons that recount the Fall, the promise of a Messiah, the Incarnation, and the Great Commission to preach the Good News. Each lesson is followed by a carol or other song and brief prayer that reflects on the lesson’s message. All are invited to pray and reflect to prepare their hearts and minds for the coming of our Savior Jesus Christ.
