Christmas Candlelight Service
Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life
Bucknell's annual Christmas Candlelight Services have become a beloved tradition for students, staff, alumni and area residents. Modeled on the Kings College Christmas Eve Service of Lessons and Carols, the Candlelight Services feature the Rooke Chapel Choir and the Rooke Chapel Ringers, under the direction of Dr. William Payn. The services also include traditional Bible readings and congregational singing.
The service is celebrated three times each year, and the dates for 2013 are December 6, 8 and 10, at 7:30 p.m. each night in Rooke Chapel. Tickets are required.
Tickets will be made available to the campus community on a first-come, first-served basis on Monday, October 28. Only those with a Bucknell ID can go, in person, with their ID, to receive up to four (4) tickets per person for any one night's service. All tickets are free of charge, but monetary donations for a local charity will be accepted at the services.
Any remaining tickets will be available, also on a first-come, first-served basis, to the general public and remaining Bucknell ID-holders (4 per person for any one service) on Tuesday, October 29, and following days until all tickets are distributed.
