Lessons and Carols

The Festival Service of Lessons and Carols featuring the University of the South Choir is one of Sewanee’s most cherished traditions.

Because the global pandemic makes it impossible to gather this year in All Saints’ Chapel, an online version of the service is available to enjoy at home.

The ceremony captures the spirit of the traditional service and shares some of the ways the University and students have successfully faced the challenges of a socially distanced semester.

It tells a Christmas story of comfort and hope, featuring music from the University Choir and lessons read by Sewanee students, faculty and staff.

Everyone is urged to set aside some time this holiday season to watch the 40-minute video and share it with family and friends.
