Christmas at Old South Church

This holiday season is different than any we have experienced before. Our travels and gatherings are limited or cancelled, and beloved traditions like sharing a special meal with loved ones have become downright dangerous. Whether you are quarantining alone or have others in your pod, Old South is here with you this holiday season. So get cozy, hop online, and have yourself a merry little Christmas with Old South Church in Boston.
