Lucia in the Minster 2016

Lucia in the Minster 2016


In collaboration with York Anglo-Scandinavian Society, York Minster hosts Swedish festival of light
A traditional Swedish service celebrating the bringer of light during the long darkness of winter will take place at York Minster on Friday 9 December.

Now in its fourth year, the atmospheric Sankta Lucia service features a candlelit procession and carols for all the family in celebration of St Lucy, a young Sicilian girl who was martyred for her Christian faith in the early fourth century. The service includes a procession led by a young girl wearing a crown of candles and is followed by traditional Swedish carols and songs. The crown of candles may symbolise a halo and the red sash martyrdom.
The procession will this year be led by the Swedish choir Järfälla kammarkör from a community just northwest of Stockholm and, as each year, they will be joined by girls from York Anglo-Scandinavian Society.

Sankta Lucia, Festival of Light, starts at 7.30pm on Friday 9 December (doors open at 7.00pm) and lasts for about an hour. Admission is free and no booking is required. There will be a collection during the service.
