Lessons and Carols with Bethlehem

 Join us online with congregations in Philadelphia and Bethlehem for this 14th annual Simulcast Christmas Service. Hear familiar carols and readings in Arabic and English. The program leaflet is available here.

As part of its new covenant with the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, the diocese will livestream a Christmas Lessons and Carols service simultaneously from Philadelphia and Bethlehem on YouTube channel.

A joint Episcopal and Lutheran service - officiated by all five Episcopal and Lutheran bishops in Southeastern Pennsylvania and Jerusalem - this simulcast service connects us to our sisters and brothers in the Holy Land, hearing familiar carols and readings in both Arabic and English, and with a special Christmas homily from the Archbishop of Jerusalem, the Most. Rev. Suheil Dawani. 

The service will be broadcast from Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem and The Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral (10 a.m. EST)
