This annual traditional program combines choral music, congregational singing, and the Biblical texts of the season. The celebratory community service (held at both 4:00 and 7:00 pm) features the Middlebury College Choir, performing under the direction of Jeffrey Buettner, and readings by students, faculty, and staff. There will be large-print programs available, and the 7:00 service will have ASL interpretation. George Matthew Jr. rings in the service with selections on the chapel carillon. Donations are collected for local charities.
