Caroling and midnight mass?

advent wreath angelTim emails with two questions:

Back home in LA every year I go around with a group of musicians who sing Christmas Carols in hospitals and nursing homes. I was wondering if you might point me in the right direction as to where I could do some Christmas Caroling this season.
If not that, how about a good candlelight/midnight mass? Does this stuff exist in Albany???

Anyone have suggestions for Tim? Please share!

The Cathedral does midnight mass. As far as caroling goes, there used to be people who came around the great Pine Hills but haven't seem then in awhile. Ask someone in the PH Neighborhood Association.

You are most welcome at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception on Eagle St for midnight mass. Service starts at 11:15 with readings and carols.

The only thing these comments are missing is a link:

If you're going to go anywhere for midnight mass The Cathedral is the place to go.

Terra Nova Church (http://terranovachurch.org/) will be having a candlelight service at 6pm on Christmas Eve in Revolution Hall on River St in Troy. This is always a very special service for our family. After all of the hustle and bustle of preparing for Christmas morning, we have found it to be a critical time to get back to why we're doing all of this. Celebrating with friends and family is such a joy! Also, it has been the church's tradition that each year we choose a local charitable organization, and contribute 100% of our Christmas Eve offering to that organization as a way of serving our community. This year, we are pleased to be supporting the Rensselaer County Habitat for Humanity where a number of Terra Nova people volunteer. Hope to see you there!

Seconding the above. Albany Youth Soccer. I played for many years with this organization. Absolutely excellent experience. Good mix of fun and hard work. Very diverse group of kids and coaches. Well organized. Many other kids I knew growing up in Albany played as well. In my opinion this is the integral kids sports experience.
