Holiday shoppers and other passersby in downtown Boston were pleasantly surprised Thursday to come upon a group of religious sisters singing Christmas carols in front of the Macy’s department store.
“It was warm everywhere else except where we were because of the wind, but people stayed anyway,” Sister Tracey Matthia Dugas, FSP, told CNA Friday, noting that “some stayed through the whole selection of songs.”
Dugas, director of mission advancement for the order in the United States, said that the sisters did nine songs for the public. She estimates that more than 150 bystanders listened to the Christmas songs throughout the free performance.
A portion of their performance can be seen below.
