The Annual Civic Carol Service in St Nicholas’ is on Sunday Dec 19 at 4.00pm and will include a traditional service of nine lessons and carols with a special blessing of the whole city. The service will be attended by the Mayor and city councillors as well as Rt Rev Richard Henderson, Bishop of Tuam and Bishop Martin Drennan, and representatives of all the main churches in the city. The public are invited to go along and join in celebrating the Nativity in prayers, readings and carols.
At 4.00pm on Christmas Eve, St Nicholas’ will host the Carols Round the Christmas Tree, a very informal and enjoyable service, specially for families. Due to the huge popularity of this service, space is limited so arrive early as doors will be closed when capacity is reached. Doors open from 3.15pm.
At these events, there will be a collection for local charities.
The Christmas Services in St Nicholas’ will be 11.30pm Christmas Eve: First Eucharist of Christmas and at 11.00am Christmas Day: Parish Eucharist
