ST. GEORGE – Hundreds of locals have been busy stringing lights on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints St. George Temple grounds in preparation for the Lighting Ceremony to be held Friday at 5:30 p.m.
This yearly tradition draws the community together to light up the grounds in celebration of the birth of the “Light of the World.”
The ceremony will include a 30-minute outdoor program with a speaker, community singing and music by the Tuacahn High School Madrigals which will lead up to the flipping of a switch to illuminate the St. George Temple grounds with hundreds of thousands of lights.
The Visitors’ Center will be festooned with Christmas trees and a display of nativity sets from around the world. Films for Christmas and of the life of Christ will be shown nightly at the Visitor’s Center as well.
There will also be lights on the LDS Tabernacle and pioneer-style Christmas decorations at the Brigham Young Home and the Jacob Hamblin Home. The Tabernacle also hosts nightly Christmas Concerts with a musical performance every evening until New Year’s Eve.
