The sounds of the Christmas season reverberated on the Rose Hill campus on Dec. 4, as the Bronx Arts Ensemble joined the University Choir for the Festival of Lessons and Carols at the University Church.

The annual event, which also was held the previous night at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in Manhattan, drew members of the Fordham community who, candles in hand, lent their voices to the chorus in celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
