“I think it’s just a reflection that COVID can’t keep God from coming to us,” the Rev. Chuck Osburn, associate pastor at La Cañada Presbyterian Church, said of the Christmas Eve event.

The churches of La Cañada Flintridge are inviting members of the community, wherever they are in the city, to sing a carol and reflect during an event on Christmas Eve.
Residents will be able to hear bells tolling from the churches that have bell systems, including St. Bede the Venerable Church and St. George’s Episcopal Church, from 8:57 p.m. until 9 p.m., when they will stop to allow La Cañada Presbyterian Church to play “Silent Night” through its system.
