Latin Club Attends Brown University's annual Latin Christmas Carol Celebration

On Monday, December 6, eleven Latin Club seniors traveled with faculty members Stefan Cressotti and Sean Albertson to Brown University's annual Latin Christmas Carol Celebration. The night began with a traditional stop at Harry's, home of Providence's best burgers and shakes, before attending the event in Brown’s Sayles Hall.

This year marked the 73rd anniversary of the Latin Christmas Carol Celebration. The event consisted of a welcoming address in Latin, followed by Latin readings and songs in the spirit of the Christmas season--with notable additions of Greek and Sanskrit included in the presentation. Four readings from Luke, John, Isaiah, and Vergil have always been part of Brown's celebration and are well-known to St. Sebastian's Latin students through their studies and participation in the Latin Club’s annual Latin Mass.
