Sunday, December 11 at 8 p.m. – Christmas Carols with the Priests

(Rochester, NY) – Set in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Fathers Eugene and Martin O'Hagan (brothers) and Father David Delargy bring the festive season alive with a collection of holiday favorites delivered with a " little priestly twist." Christmans Carols with the Priests airs Sunday, December 11 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT 21.1/cable 1011 and 11). The special repeats Saturday, December 24 at 8 p.m and Sunday, December 25 at 5 p.m.

The classical music group earned the Guinness World Record for "Fastest-selling UK debut for a classical act" in December 2008. That success soon spread around the world as music fans became captivated by the three Irish clergy members committed to both their local parish and to their music. Further recordings followed, including a Christmas CD released in 2010. The Priests now showcase their seasonal classics in this one-hour Christmas special, Christmas Carols with the Priests.
