Candlelight, Pageants, and Midnight Mass :: Christmas Eve Worship Services Around Boston

With snow on the ground and many a Christmas tree adorning the windows of the homes we pass by, it is evident that there is an overwhelming feeling of holiday cheer.

But just as the people that make up the city of Boston are diverse, so are what the holidays mean to the masses. To some, it is a celebration of presents and family, to others, goodwill. And for some, the holidays are a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

From Catholic to non-denominational, there is no shortage of worship services in the area. And if you are looking for a special Christmas Eve parish pageant, a candlelight service, or a midnight mass, there’s most likely a place near you.

From living nativities to singalongs, here are some Christmas Eve services in the Boston area that go beyond your average worship. (As schedules change from time to time, please double check websites for service times and possible weather-related updates.)
