Mysteries of Christmas

For Unto Us a Son is Given

Since 2005, Mysteries of Christmas has become a traditional part of the Advent season for Loras College and Dubuque communities.



In keeping with our College’s mission statement, Mysteries of Christmas provides all a joyous occasion to welcome in the Season of Advent as we wait with expectation for the coming of Christ. Music and readings give the audience, musicians and lectors material to ponder the wonder and awe of God’s gift of salvation to us, through his Son Jesus.


From its inception in 2005, Mysteries of Christmas has sought to provide the community with a seasonal experience that presents the highest quality of music and literature in a concert format imbued with our Catholic culture.


2021's performance is scheduled to be held on Friday, December 10, 2021. The joyous 90-minute performance features vocal and instrumental pieces integrated with prayers and spiritual messages to enter more deeply into the Advent season. Each anthem, motet, instrumental movement and reading invites us to revel in the anticipation of two manners of Christ’s coming: his past incarnation at Christmas and his future return at the end of time.


Admission offering may be $10 per person or $30 for a family four-pack.
