The Saint Lucia Festival is a very special tradition celebrated throughout Sweden at this time of year. Lucia is a symbol of light and hope in the very dark winter season.

The service will include the candlelit Lucia procession with many of the special songs belonging to this beautiful tradition.

The parish choirs of Hudiksvall will be performing in the service as well as members from the Evangeliska Fosterlandsstiftelsen (EFS), the charity that founded the Swedish Seamen’s church here in Liverpool in 1883.

A candlelit performance of the choir in the darkened cathedral is part of the service, starting with a candlelit procession of the choir up to the transept area, They then sing Swedish traditional Lucia songs and the performance is concluded with a candlelit procession.
