THE WEDNESDAY REPORT: November 16, 2022

Dear Partners in Ministry,

While I have a minute between finalizing the concert program and heading to tonight's GIFT session, let's talk turkey (or, at least, things happening near Turkey Day!)

Friday, Nov 18: BROKEN · SHARED: Christian, Luke, and Tony in Concert

Please join us Friday night for a concert of original liturgical music by myself and two of my dearest friends! We'll present fifteen pieces—some of which you've already learned since I showed up— that take us through a spiritual meditation on what the last two years have meant for us as people of faith. 7:30 pm concert, free to all... bring a friend!

And: as you're (hopefully) enjoying the music, please keep track of songs you think we might enjoy adding to our parish repertoire.

Nov 19–20: Solemnity of Christ the King

Our last Sunday of the liturgical year is upon us! See below for selections.

Thursday, Nov 24: Thanksgiving Day

All are welcome to join me in ministry for our Thanksgiving Day Mass at 9:00 am. And, of course, no rehearsal that night.

Nov 26–27:  Advent is ON!

Our first Advent season together starts in just ten days! We'll bring back the Gokelman/Kauffman Mass of Renewal, and begin each liturgy with Steve Angrisano's "Emmanuel," which we'll dive into tomorrow night.
