Twice a year the Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity hosts a musical performance by its own Chorale. The Chorale has a history here at SPSSOD of having seminarians and lay students rehearse once a week, putting on their two performances around the liturgical feasts of Epiphany and Easter. The Chorale also often sings for Diaconate Ordination for this Archdiocese.

Come Sunday, January 11, the SPSSOD Chorale will host its annual Lessons and Carols. This is a traditional event which celebrates the birth of Christ by recalling the events of salvation history. It is a mix of readings from the Scriptures ("Lessons") and songs which melodically tell of the same mysteries ("Carols"). It always promises to be a prayerful and joyous event. Reception and camaraderie follows the service.

So mark it in your calendar. Sunday, January 11th, at 4:00 p.m. in the Saint Paul Seminary Chapel.
