Christmas Services

Events and receptions through Jan. 1, 2021 have been canceled

The COVID-19 crisis also presents us with challenges related to our upcoming alumni and community events. Of course, canceling any St. George's event saddens us, as we consider these gatherings such an important part of maintaining our close-knit community.

If you have any questions or concerns about the cancelation of these events, please reach out to events@stgeorges.edu

109th Annual Christmas Festival, Service of Lessons & Carols

St. George’s School once again will open free to the public two special student Christmas services.

Friday, Dec. 10, 2021, at 7:30 p.m.

A candlelight Christmas Service of Nine Lessons & Carols will take place in the majestic St. George’s Chapel. The readings are by students and members of the faculty and community. The St. George’s Chapel Choir leads the carols and performs anthems of the season.

Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2021, at 7:30 p.m.

The 109th Annual Medieval Christmas Festival will take place, also in the Chapel. This service traces its origins back to Roman times when the December celebrations of Saturnalia would provide a welcome respite from the rigors of winter. This is a ceremony that heralds the Incarnation with Christmas hymns and a procession of Mary and Joseph with the Baby Jesus, shepherds, kings and angels. The service has remained nearly the same at St. George’s throughout its 109-year history.

Seating is limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early.
