Christmas in Harmony

2017 CatholicTV Special with Sweet Harmony from Riverside Theatre Works in Hyde Park, MA

Selections include:

  • Do You Hear What I Hear?
  • Mary, Did You Know?
  • Cool Yule
  • Mister Santa



Bishop Robert Reed is joined by 1st graders from St. Jude's School in Waltham, MA, as he reads Christmas Stories and they sing Christmas Carols.


This in-depth look at the life and times of St. Nicholas takes you to beautiful Mediterranean locations where Nicholas actually lived. Experts tell about new historical and scientific analysis. Some of the most widely known St. Nicholas stories are told along with others less well known. Through it all the true story of a third century Christian man named Nicholas emerges, a man known for his generosity and concern for the poor. Bishop Nicholas stood for truth at a critical time in Church history and he profoundly affected the people in his community. This is a man who may actually be more interesting than the many legends that have grown up around him.

Hosted by Mark Wilson, Asia Minor Research Center, and featuring commentary by Father Gerardo Cioffari, Centro Studi Nicolaiani, Bari, Italy; Adam English, author of The Saint Who Became Santa Claus; and Carol Myers, St. Nicholas Center.
