Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols

St. Andrew’s Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is patterned after the Christmas Eve service held in King's College Chapel, Cambridge Introduced in 1918 and first broadcast in 1928. It is now broadcast to millions of people around the world and has become a staple of Episcopal churches in the United States. In the service, readings are followed by carols and anthems from the Youth and Adult choirs and carols sung by the congregation. This year, in keeping with the King’s College Chapel tradition, we have invited readers prominent for their contributions in various aspects of our State College Community to participate in the service. (Readers will include Mayor Don Hahn, State College Chief of Police, John Gardner, Dr. Barbara Farmer, Dr. Richard Allatt, MD, Paul Confer, and Susan Russell.

The public is invited and encouraged to attend. A reception will follow the service.
