DEC 2 | Sun. 7 PM | Madonna della Strada | Free

Join us for our new Christmas tradition, Lessons and Carols, a liturgy of song in which nine lessons are told, recounting Scripture. Based on an order drawn up by the Bishop of Truro in Cornwall, England in 1880, Lessons and Carols tells the story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus. Readings are taken from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols, hymns, and choir music.

Loyola’s University ChoraleWomens’ Chorus, and Schola Cantorum perform various selections.

SPECIAL NOTE:

Starting November 30th at 8:30PM, emergency structure repairs to two ‘L’ viaducts will close sections of both Sheridan Road and Rosemont Avenue until 6AM on Monday, December 3rd.

Sheridan Road
The entire section of east-west Sheridan Road will be shut down to all vehicular traffic between Winthrop Avenue and Broadway Street. City permits do specify that at least one sidewalk must remain open at all times through the work zone.

Rosemont Avenue
The entire section of east-west Rosemont Avenue will be shut down to all vehicular traffic between Winthrop Avenue and Broadway Street. During non-construction working hours, there will be a westbound pass through lane from Broadway to Winthrop. Please be sure to proceed through this lane with caution.

This shut down is necessary to allow Keiwit Infrastructure and the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) to make emergency viaduct repairs. All traffic detours will be handled by the Chicago Department of Transportation and the CTA, and the routes are subject to change as deemed necessary.
