The Candlelight Services are a musical celebration of Advent composed of lessons and carols presented by the choristers and instrumentalists of Luther College High School. This tradition became an annual event in the life of the College after its relocation to Regina in 1926. The Candlelight Services are a cherished tradition in the life of Luther College and in the lives of many in the community. It remains an outgrowth of Christian conviction and an expression of Luther’s rich musical heritage.
