The Christmas Festival of Lights is just 12 days away!

The Grotto's Christmas Festival of Lights is just 12 days away. Opening Friday, Nov. 25, the annual event celebrates the true meaning of Christmas with music, lights and joy.

Known as the world's largest Christmas Choral Festival, more than 150 choirs will perform over the course of 35 nights in the Chapel of Mary, known for its cathedral-like acoustics. 

There are nightly puppet shows and caroling in the pavilion tent, and music all around the grounds. And don't forget the millions of lights!

Open my heart, O Lord; give me a nudge to be more generous–with my time, with my resources, with my gifts. Let me be more attentive to those around me; lead me to step up when I see a need where my help would be welcome. Remind me that sometimes all that someone needs is a listening ear and an understanding heart.
