GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College presents its 54th annual Festival of Lessons and Carols at 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8, in Hannah Brown Finch Memorial Chapel on campus.

The event is free, and the public is invited.

The candlelit Advent worship service includes Scripture readings, liturgy, and performances by the college’s vocal and instrumental musicians under the direction of Jonathan P. Brotherton, professor of music.

The tradition was brought to Greensboro College from King’s Chapel, Cambridge, England, by the late Dr. James Hull, Jefferson-Pilot Professor of Religion and Philosophy.

The service is designed to symbolize the bond between the academic community and the city, and peace within the whole church, as well as the joy and the worship of all during the holiday season.

Greensboro College provides a liberal arts education grounded in the traditions of the United Methodist Church and fosters the intellectual, social, and, spiritual development of all students while supporting their individual needs.

Founded in 1838 and located in downtown Greensboro, the college enrolls about 1,000 students from 29 states and territories, the District of Columbia, and seven foreign countries in its undergraduate liberal-arts program and six master’s degree programs. In addition to rigorous academics and a well-supported Honors program, the school features a 17-sport NCAA Division III athletic program and dozens of service and recreational opportunities.

Think critically. Act justly. Live faithfully.
