A Gustavus tradition since 1973, Christmas in Christ Chapel is an opportunity for students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni to gather and celebrate the birth of Christ with music and visual art. The 2005 service featured music and text that represented some of the ways that the birth of Christ has been depicted from the early Christian communities to today.

For the 5 services, more than 250 students joined 6,000 parents, friends, and alumni to celebrate the Advent and Christmas seasons in song and visual art. Ensembles featured in the broadcasts include the Gustavus Symphony Orchestra, the Gustavus Choir, the Choir of Christ Chapel, the Christ Chapel Ringers, the Lucia Singers, the Christ Chapel Brass, and other brass ensembles.

“I wanted to hold together the notion of eternity coming into time,” Chaplain Brian Johnson, artistic director for Christmas in Christ Chapel, said of the theme. “Also how visual artists and musicians have looked at the idea differently. Timeless moment — birth of Christ, eternity being born in time. Ageless visions — visual artists and musicians looking at this experience differently.”

Christmas in Christ Chapel is held during the first weekend of December.
