O Come All Ye Faithful! Please join us for...


Christmas Caroling

on the Shrewsbury Town Common

on the Third Day of Christmas

Wednesday, December 27, 2023

from 5 pm to 6 pm



Additional details and notes from Mrs. Towne:


The Common is safe and decorated festively, though the intersection (Main St/Rt 140) can be very busy with the library, fire station, and a couple of restaurants located right there.  If you use 17-19 Church Street, Shrewsbury, MA for the address (Shrewsbury Historical Society and First Congregational Church), that should work well.  There is parking between those buildings (which face the Common) and the cemetery (which is to the rear of the buildings).


Let’s plan to arrive by 4:45 so we can be singing by 5.


We will use the following songbook: A Collection of Christmas Carols

and I have a number of copies to share.

It would be great if someone would be willing to direct/lead our singing. Any volunteers? Below is last year’s songlist.


We will have a light supper, including a hearty soup at a location to be announced (hopefully, very soon). Please consider bringing some bread, cookies, or drinks to share. Paper goods will be provided.

We hope to see all of you there! Please R.S.V.P. below with your inclinations to join as you can predict them at this point. : )
