The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a service celebrating the birth of Jesus, which is traditionally followed at Christmas. The story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings, interspersed with the singing of carols, anthems, and hymns. The service was originally designed by the Reverend Eric Milner-White, and has become known worldwide through the broadcasts from the Chapel of King’s College, Cambridge, England.
Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is located at 2620 Capitol Avenue at 27th Street in midtown Sacramento. Parking may be available in the Sutter Community garage at 27th and N Streets. www.trinitycathedral.org
