Built on Tradition: Join Us for Rowland Hall's 100th Candle and Carol Service

Ask older alumnae of Rowland Hall what their favorite tradition is, and many will name Candle and Carol. Modeled after the English Lessons and Carols services of the late 19th century, the Rowland Hall evening program began in 1917 as a celebration of the holiday season.
