This year, the theme of Lessons and Carols is “Ancient to Modern,” a celebration of the season of advent through the ages.  Songs and music will range from Ancient Gregorian chant to Matt Maher’s contemporary music and multilingual readings of Scripture and prose will be represented as well.  Music will be led by the Assumption College Music Ministry and readers from the Assumption community.  Come celebrate this beautiful season with a long-standing and beloved Assumption tradition.
