The annual Christmas vespers service at Wilson College will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2, in Thomson Hall's Alumnae Chapel.

The service will feature scripture readings by students, faculty and staff; a brief sermon by Wilson's chaplain, the Rev. Derek Wadlington; and three songs performed by the Wilson College Choir. In addition, everyone will sing carols, including O Come O Come Emmanuel, What Child is This, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Joy to the World, Night of Silence/Silent Night and Angels We Have Heard on High.

An offering collected during the evening will go to several local nonprofit agencies that have partnered with the college in service-learning portions of students' First-Year Seminar.

After the service, refreshments will be served in the newly remodeled Sarah’s Coffeehouse on the lower level of Lenfest Commons.
