Centenary presents Lessons and Carols at annual Christmas Candlelight Service December 1
SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary College ushers in the holiday season with its annual Christmas Candlelight Service at Brown Chapel on Friday, December 1. Gathering music begins at 5:30 p.m. and a program of Lessons and Carols begins at 6:00 p.m. The service is free and open to the public.
“Our Christmas Candlelight Service will offer a traditional Lessons and Carols format this year to highlight more of the music that we so love during the Christmas season,” says Centenary chaplain, Rev. Lindy Broderick. “We hope our Lessons and Carols will convey the theme of peace that we so yearn for during this Advent and Christmas season.”
Broderick will preside at the service along with Centenary president Dr. Christopher L. Holoman and Centenary College Choir director Dr. David Hobson. Centenary students and faculty will read scripture.
Music is the heart of the annual service, including both choral performances and congregational carol singing. The Centenary College Choir, under the direction of Dr. David Hobson, and the Camerata choral ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Cory Wikan, will be accompanied by organist Dr. Hollice Watson and the I-49 Brass group.
A reception follows the service in the lobby of the College’s Magale Library.
