November 28, 2016
SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary College will host its annual Christmas Candlelight Service in Brown Memorial Chapel on Friday, December 2 at 6:00 p.m., with gathering music beginning at 5:30 p.m. This Centenary holiday tradition is free and open to the public, and the entire Shreveport-Bossier community is encouraged to attend.
Bishop William W. Hutchinson, retired bishop of the Louisiana Annual Conference, will offer a message at the service. Also presiding will be Louisiana's United Methodist Bishop, Rev. Cynthia Harvey, Chaplain of the College, Maegan Habich, and Centenary President Dr. Christopher L. Holoman.
“We are delighted to have Bishop Hutchinson back in Northwest Louisiana and are excited to hear his message on peace, justice, and hope this year at Christmas Candlelight,” said Habich.
Choral performances and congregational singing are a highlight of the early evening service. The Centenary College Choir under the direction of Dr. David Hobson, and Camerata, under the direction of Dr. Cory Wikan, will be accompanied by organist Dr. Hollice Watson and the I-49 Brass group. The service concludes as the entire congregation lights candles and sings “Silent Night” while processing out of the chapel.
A reception follows the service in the lobby of the College’s Magale Library.
