Join us for a holiday choral extravaganza, featuring two local choral groups. First, you'll hear from The Vallejo Choral Society followed by the Napa Methodist Cathedral Choir. Each chorus will present a joyful array of Holiday tunes, including a few sing-alongs. You may have heard these groups before, as each has been featured in concerts at St. Peter's in the past.  

The doors will open at 1:30pm to give you time to not only see the luminous Tiffany stained glass windows, but also enjoy an interlude of holiday tunes on the pipe organ.

Seating is limited, so book your tickets early!

Ticket Prices: Adults - $15 | Children under 13- $10| MIHPF receive a $5 discount.
