Christmas in the Chapel Candlelight Services

Looks like this event has already taken place.


Elkhart Cemetary, Elkhart, IL 62634

Come celebrate the start of the Holiday season with an evening Candlelight Service in the Historic St. John the Baptist Chapel in Elkhart. This small, intimate, castle-like chapel is the perfect backdrop for an evening of beautiful, holiday music.

The Elkhart Historical Society is delighted to announce the upcoming Christmas Candlelight Services at the Historic Chapel on Elkhart Hill, December 3, 2022. This year’s exceptionally talented cast, Springfield’s Wild Columbine, M. C’s Jay and Megan Drake from Lacon, Celista and Ken Reese, from Elkhart, and Organist Marcy Brooks, from Greeneville TN, will deliver music, stories, vocals, and art, in a unique blend guaranteed to add new dimensions to your holidays. The distinctive artwork created by Celista Reese at each service, will then be available with a silent auction bid at the end of each service.

Four services are offered at 2 p.m., 4p.m. 5:30 p.m., and 8 p.m., and must be reserved starting on November 3 by calling 217 947 2238 between 8a.m. -7p.m.

Combining the service with a delicious holiday meal with all the trimmings at Horsefeathers Wild Hare Café, before or after the service, can create a lasting memory with friends or family. Please let us help book the meal option when you reserve your service to complete your evening. Prior to calling, please go to the website for downloadable reservation forms with all the service and menu information times and prices: Any extra time between services and meals can always be spent exploring the quaint shops in the business district of Elkhart and be sure to visit on November 19 between 9a-5p for our annual Elkhart Village Christmas Open House, where special gifts, tasty treats and warm drinks are offered.
