St. Peter and Paul Church in Nauvoo, IL will host a free program entitled “A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols,” a service of anthems by the choirs of St. Paul Lutheran Church of Jackson, Missouri. The service of Lessons and Carols has its origins in the Anglican Tradition and offers reflections on the upcoming celebration of the birth of Christ. It includes Scripture readings and hymns that speak of the fall of mankind and their salvation in the Person of Jesus.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with a pre-festival talk about the origins and design of the service beginning at 6:45 p.m. A free-will offering will be received.
