Mount Saint Joseph Abbey and Cistercian College will host the Annual Christmas Carol Service in the Abbey Church Sunday 15th December at 4.00 pm.
Mount Saint Joseph Abbey and Cistercian College Roscrea opened the doors of the Abbey Church this week to all for the highly anticipated Annual Christmas Carol Service.
Presided over by Dom Malachy Thompson and directed by William Cullagh, Director of Music at Cistercian College, guests and visitors experienced an afternoon of Christmas readings, carols and hymns including Silent Night, O Come All Ye Faithful and Oh Holy Night.
The widely celebrated Annual Christmas Carol Service is a highlight on the College calendar and both students and staff this year outdid themselves, performing beautifully sung carols to a very large congregation. As many past students, parents and visitors will testify, the occasion each year is a treat to the senses set in the peaceful and tranquil setting of the Abbey and this week we were delighted to welcome so many to join us in an evening of song to celebrate and reflect on this special time of year.
