Check out the following events at Trinity during this season of Advent!
Santa Lucia Festival: In honor of the Christian martyr Saint Lucy (or Santa Lucia), whose veneration has deep connections to the Trinity’s Scandinavian roots, Trinity students are encouraged to practice Christian service during this annual Advent celebration. Events surrounding this year’s Santa Lucia celebration include the annual dorm decorating contest, the Fair Trade Gift Market on Dec. 5, and the Christmas Service Project sponsored by Community Partnerships Cabinet on Dec. 7. Santa Lucia concludes with the annual Santa Lucia Formal Dance on Dec. 13, where this year’s Miss Santa Lucia — a freshman girl who best exemplifies the characteristics of Christian service and leadership — will be crowned. Any questions regarding service opportunities can be directed to TIU College Union.
TIU Christmas Concert: Saturday, Dec. 7 at 3:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Join Trinity’s music ensembles for the annual Christmas Concert “Come and Behold Him! A Festival of Lessons and Carols.” Come celebrate the Christmas season with performances from the Concert Choir, the Symphonic Band, and the Handbell Choir. This concert is open to the public. General admission is $12 ($10 for students/seniors, $8 for all TIU students, staff, faculty, and families). For more information or questions regarding group or family discounts, call (847) 317-8021.
Best Christmas Story Ever: Dec. 13 at 11:00 a.m. As per tradition, the semester’s final chapel service will give four students an opportunity to share their most cherished Christmas memories, with one to be crowned the “Best Christmas Story Ever.” Finish off the semester with laughs, tears, and everything in between at this special chapel service!
