Maynooth College annual carol service to go ahead on 15 December
“Join us online and enjoy our talented choirs for this beautiful and moving celebration of the eternal message of Christmas” – Rev Prof Michael Mullaney
On Wednesday three Maynooth College and University choirs will gather in the historic College Chapel of Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth, for the annual Christmas carol service: the College Chapel Choir, directed by Dr John O’Keeffe; the Schola Gregoriana, led by Dr Darina McCarthy; and Maynooth University Chamber Choir, under the direction of Dr Michael Dawson. This renowned and uplifting choral celebration of the Christmas season has been a highlight of the Advent calendar in Ireland since 1970.
Following public health guidance, a much-reduced congregation will attend this year’s carol service, which will be livestreamed on Wednesday 15 December at 7:30pm. The online link for the carol service can be found on the College website: www.maynoothcollege.ie. The service will be led by the President of Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth, Rev Professor Michael Mullaney who, announcing this year’s event, said, “I am truly delighted that this year’s Christmas carol service can go ahead with a small in-person audience. I extend an invitation to everyone who can to join us online and enjoy hymns sung by our three talented choirs for this beautiful and moving celebration of the eternal message of Christmas.”
Thought for the week: At Christmas time we cherish hope, with love and joy to share,
And pray for peace to fill the world for people everywhere.
