The 11th annual ‘Carols at the Cathedral’ will take place on Friday, the 14th of December starting at 7:00pm with a candlelight procession. This beautiful event is based on the traditional ceremony of carols and readings telling the story of Christ’s coming into the world. Bishop Tim will give a short homily during the evening and a collection will be taken (this year’s collection goes to the drought appeal). The evening concludes with supper. The Diocesan Choir, made up of singers from all the Townsville parishes, will lead the congregation’s singing of much-loved carols as well as presenting special choral pieces.
