Denison University will host the ninth annual “Candlelight Service of Lessons and Carols” at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 14, in Swasey Chapel (200 Chapel Drive). Mark R. Orten, director of religious life and university chaplain, and Kevin N. Wines, liturgist and conductor, will preside at the service, which is free and open to the public.
Jointly sponsored by the office of religious life and the department of music, the service was inaugurated in 2000 and is now a Christmas celebration for the University and a seasonal event for the local community. Preceded by a week of tower bell concerts, the service will include biblical readings, processions and congregational carols.
In addition, the Lessons and Carols Choir composed of students studying in the music department, and Denison’s Ladies’ Night Out and Tehillah a cappella ensembles, will be presenting special music. Scott Hayes, organist at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Granville, will play and lead the singing of the congregational carols from the organ console.
