Lessons and Carols celebrate the coming of Christ

Laudamus sings several pieces.
Ruth McDonnell and Nils Niemeier add their talents to the event.

A Service of Lessons and Carols was held in chapel Dec. 14, 2017, featuring the Seminary choir Laudamus and several instrumental groups. This type of service originated in the United Kingdom. The order of service includes traditional liturgical forms that vividly express the church’s preparation for the coming of our Lord Jesus both in the festival of Christmas and in the consummation of the ages.
