Gospel Music Program

Dear Friends,

This week, I want to tell you about some of our upcoming musical offerings at Saint Mary’s. 

Our weekly concerts will continue as scheduled on Wednesdays at 3:00 pm.  I’m glad to hear so many positive responses to these programs, and I hope our broadcasts continue to find you all well.  Many thanks to Cheryl Barton and Julie Taylor for all their help with these programs - we truly couldn’t do it without you!

For our program on Wednesday, October 28, Cheryl and I will present a special Gospel Concert in celebration of All Saint’s Day.  If you would like us to make a dedication in memory of someone, please let us know and a memorial will be offered during the concert.  We can also display a photo for you, if you so desire.  Arrangements for dedications and photos can be made with me directly, or with Julie Taylor at the church office.

It’s good that we are somewhat “open” again, and that certain things are happening, even if only in limited fashion.  I miss working with our choir, and I pray for the day when we can reconvene. I also miss hearing Karin’s voluntaries, as I know many of you do as well.

If you’d like the opportunity to hear some of Karin’s music at home, a recording will be made available to you free of charge.  Available formats are audio CD or digital download.  If you’d like to have one of these recordings, please contact me or the office directly.

Enjoy the music this weekend - and until we meet again, take care and stay well!
