The Festival of St. Lucia is a very special time for Gustavus. It celebrates the legend of St. Lucia, a woman devoted to caring for others and who was martyred at the age for 20 for standing up for what she believed was right. The legend of Lucia continues to be a vision for light and hope in the world. The St. Lucia Festival will be held during daily Sabbath on Thursday, Dec. 12th.
