Merry Christmas Eve! We would love to hear from you: let us know in the comments how your family celebrates! The diversity of Christmas traditions is a beautiful testament to the wide range of cultures that welcome the Nativity of the Lord. Do you open presents, go caroling door-to-door, bake festive cookies, watch a treasured holiday movie, or enjoy seasonal foods today?
The Cathedral will celebrate with two special services today. Although advance passes have all been distributed, we will have standby lines for our 3:45 pm service of Lessons and Carols and our 10 pm Festal Eucharist. Our service of Lessons and Carols will also be livestreamed here and on the Cathedral’s website and YouTube channel for all to take part.
Tomorrow morning, we will hail the birth of Christ with our Holy Eucharist service at 10:30 am. No passes are needed to attend our Christmas Day service, which will also be livestreamed for all. (Please note, the Cathedral’s Visitor Center will be closed tomorrow so our staff can enjoy the holiday at home with family and friends.)
Happy holidays to all! We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming festive services this weekend! For more info on all of the Cathedral’s Christmas services, visit us online at stjohndivine.org.
