Join St. Mary's and the community in this caroling event. We will meet in the Courtyard at 1:00 PM on Saturday, December 21. We will travel down Union Street singing our hearts out, so dress warmly! We’ll return to the Courtyard for a cup of cheer and perhaps a few more carols. Please invite friends and neighbors, young and old who may enjoy singing carols together!
No prior expertise is required; lyrics and music provided. Come, rain or shine; if the weather outside is frightful we will gather inside to sing together.
