Candlelight Carols

A beloved Boston tradition since 1909, Candlelight Carols celebrates the birth of Christ through Scripture readings and carols and anthems offered by the Trinity choirs and instrumentalists.  

In the October 21, 2016 edition of Yankee Magazine, writer Amy Traverso called it "...as close to heaven as human hands and voices have ever crafted. To be amid people in a room so full and so fully at peace. This is the Christmas of dreams."

Please join us!  For the two services that are free, with open seating, lines form in Copley Square prior to the doors opening. As an alternative and to ensure a designated seat, you may wish to consider purchasing a ticket to the Candlelight Carols Benefit.
