From candlelight services to costumed performances, to midnight masses, we've compiled a great list of Christmas service times and events in the area. Some services include spectacular choir performances, family activities for kids, and one is geared just for little kids.
High Attendances Expected
Christmas Eve is one of the highest attended services in the US, and many Katy area churches are having multiple services to accommodate the demand. According to Lifeway Research, 6 in 10 Americans attend church during Christmastime making it one of the busiest church days in the year. Some services include special events for children but all of these services are appropriate for families with young children.
