SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - John Brown University plans to ring in the holiday season with its 72nd annual Candlelight Service.

The event, scheduled Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the Cathedral of the Ozarks, will include traditional melodies, Christmas classics and inspirational readings.

The Candlelight Service has been a tradition at JBU since the 1940’s. Each year the event welcomes thousands of people from Northwest Arkansas, surrounding states and the JBU community to celebrate the Christmas season.

This year’s Candlelight Service will feature selections performed by the Cathedral Choir and Chamber Choir, directed by Paul Smith. Performances are free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and early arrival is encouraged.

John Brown University is a private, Christian university, ranked No. 1 overall among Southern regional colleges by U.S. News.
