St. Dunstan’s will again host a service of Nine Lessons and Carols at 5pm on Sunday, December 17.  

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols was first held at King’s College, Cambridge, on Christmas Eve 1918. It was planned by Eric Milner-White, who had just been appointed Dean of King’s Chapel after experience as an army chaplain in the First World War.  The service alternates lessons from scripture with hymns/anthems by the choir, and is a beloved Episcopal/Anglican tradition for many.
