Katherine Anne Russell, left, and Anna Fecteau hand their electric candles to Russell’s mother, Joanne, on Friday evening after an evening of Lessons and Carols on the front porch of the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in Lewiston. The traditional service of nine lessons tells the story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus in short Bible readings interspersed with Christmas carols and hymns.
