Saint Lucia is called Sankta Lucia in Norwegian, Swedish and Danish, she is represented as a lady in a white dress with a crown or wreath of candles on her head. In Scandinavia, girls dressed as Saint Lucia carry candles in procession as songs are sung, which symbolizes bringing the light of Christianity throughout world darkness.

The event will begin with a procession where choir members carry candle light into the church singing the Lucia song in Scandinavian language. This will be followed by a selection of Christmas songs and textreadings related to Saint Lucia and Christmas.

Falling within the Advent season, Saint Lucia’s Day is these days viewed as an event signalling the arrival of Christmastide, pointing to the arrival of the Light of Christ in the calendar, on Christmas Day. In cooperation with Hull Minster, the Danish Church, and Nordic Chambers and organisations in and around the Humber we are pleased to invite you, your family and friends to this great event – all are welcome including children.

The service is free to attend. Donations welcome.

After the Service we kindly invite you to a reception in Hull Minster’s Café, where Glögg and Danish “brunkager” will be served.
