The following comes from a Dec. 17 release from the Cardinal Newman Society.

Roughly 150 students from Thomas Aquinas College (TAC) in Santa Paula, Calif., recently participated in a choral “flash mob” at the Pacific View Mall in Ventura, Calif., the College reported.

The performance is one of the many ways students from faithful Catholic colleges across the country are preparing for and celebrating the upcoming Christmas season.

The large group of undergraduates reportedly burst into song in the mall, performing three pieces—“Angels We Have Heard on High,” “Oh Come All Ye Faithful,” and “Go Tell It on the Mountain”—to “surprised customers and employees [who] seemed to delight in the performance,” according to the College.

The flash mob, held for the first time last year, is on its way to becoming an annual tradition, according to the College’s news release. Last year’s video of the event was reportedly covered on EWTN’s World Over and received more than 50,000 views online.
