HPU to Host Annual Lessons and Carols Candlelight Service

HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 22, 2016 – High Point University will bring the community together to remember and retell the Christmas story during the annual Lessons and Carols Candlelight Service at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 30 in the Charles E. Hayworth Memorial Chapel. The public is invited to attend; tickets are not required.

This is the final chapel service of the fall semester. Based on the traditional Festival of Lessons and Carols at King’s College in Cambridge, England, the service will feature members of the university community reading scripture and music led by the Chapel Choir.

Following the candlelight service, those attending are invited to walk directly outside to the Chapel Garden Christmas tree, where cookies and hot chocolate will be served.

The service will be broadcast live to the chapel fellowship hall to accommodate overflow attendance and online at www.highpoint.edu/live.

Attendees should enter campus from University Parkway and Montlieu Avenue. Parking will be available behind Hayworth Fine Arts Center.
