Lessons & Carols 2022

Catawba College’s annual Service of Lessons and Carols was held on  November 28 and December 1, 2022 in the beautifully decorated Omwake-Dearborn Chapel. The service is based on the famous ritual that originated at King’s College in Cambridge, England in 1919 which weaves beautiful carols of the season with scriptures or lessons, relating to the story of Christmas from the prophecies to the mystery of the Holy Trinity. The service is seven lessons with scripture readings by the President of the Student Body, a member of the Salisbury-Rowan community, a member of the college administration staff, two faculty members, the Provost, and the President of the College. Participants in the service typically include the Catawba Singers, the Catawba Men’s Ensemble, the Catawba Women’s Ensemble, and the Catawba Brass Ensemble.
