Since March 2020 church choirs have fallen silent and their members are missing the joy of singing and of being together. Christmas 2020 will be a very different time for parishes and choirs. This year, a diocesan-wide Carol Service will be streamed from the Cathedral of St. Mary and St. Anne on Sunday 13th December at 7.30pm.
Ten choirs (with six members each) will participate from parishes throughout the Diocese of Cork and Ross via the Church Services webcam installed in their church. People from the Diocese of Cork and Ross are invited to join in the Carol Service via the Cathedral webcam https://www.corkcathedral.ie/live-stream/ on that evening.
The words of the carols and full order of service can be downloaded from the Diocesan website www.corkandross.org beforehand to enable as many people and especially choir members to participate online.
