Sponsored by Bates’ Multifaith Chaplaincy, the service is open to the community. For more information, call 207-786-8272.

Bates’ Service of Lessons and Carols draws on the traditional structure of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, telling the story of the birth of Jesus through traditional scriptural readings mixed with a few contemporary prose readings.

Traditional Christmas hymns and musical performances by college vocal and instrumental groups round out the service.

The service will be led by Acting Multifaith Chaplain Emily Wright-Magoon and Acting Associate Multifaith Chaplain Raymond Clothier. Musical performers will include the Three Point Jazz Trio, the College Choir, the Crosstones, the Deansmen, the Gospelaires, the Manic Optimists, the Merimanders and TakeNote.
