Christmas Candlelight Service
The South Carolina Corps of Cadets presents its Christmas Candlelight Service annually to the Lowcountry in Summerall Chapel on The Citadel campus Friday, December 2, Saturday, December 3, and Sunday, December 4 at 7:30pm.
Cadets from the Protestant, Catholic, Gospel Choirs, Chorale, and members of The Citadel Regimental Band take part in the annual celebration of the birth of Christ, observing the events of the Advent, the Annunciation, the Birth of the King, and Epiphany through Scripture lessons and carols. Traditional and international favorites are sung, and special highlights include the Procession of Lights. Cadets coordinate the production with Michael Varnadore, Chapel Organist, and LTC Tim Smith, Band Director.
The hour-long program is free and open to the public. Donations are accepted and appreciated as they support the many student ministries of the Chapel. Flash cameras and video lights are not permitted. This event is one of the most popular Christmas activities in Charleston. Visitors are encouraged to arrive early to secure parking on campus and seating in the chapel. For more information, call (843) 953-5049.
