Celebrate the Christmas Season With Saint Martin's Procession of Carols

Nov. 22, 2004

Lacey - Saint Martin’s College’s invites the community to help usher in the spirit of the Christmas season with the college’s Procession of the Carols, a wonderful - and free - family event that will begin at 5:45 p.m. Dec. 5.

Sponsored by the college’s department of music, office of alumni relations and Campus Ministry, the procession will begin at the doors of the Old Main building’s Pacific Avenue entrance, 5300 Pacific Ave. Small groups of guests will be greeted by escorts and ushered through halls laced with carolers and musicians. After short concerts by the Saint Martin’s College Chorale and the Puyallup Youth Chime Choir on the upper floors of the building, guests can attend a candlelight mass at Saint Martin’s Abbey Church, then follow the light of the luminarias back to St. Gertrude Dining Hall in Old Main. There, guests can enjoy refreshments during the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony and a Christmas carol sing-along to music by the Saint Martin’s College Concert Band and American Legion Band.

Please make reservations by Dec. 2, so the elfs will know how many cookies to bake! Reservations can be made by contacting the office of alumni relations, 360-438-4366; 800-220-7722; alumni@stmartin.edu.
