On Saturday, December 3, 2022, at 7:30 p.m., we invite you to join us at Roy Thomson Hall as we celebrate this joyous time of year at Christmas with The Salvation Army.

From singing contemporary and traditional carols to heart-warming and inspiring songs of the season provided by special guests that include Measha Brueggergosman-Lee and our own Canadian Staff Band and Canadian Staff Songsters, you will have an opportunity to reflect on the hope, peace and joy that came to earth 2,000 years ago through a little baby boy.

We look forward to seeing you!
