Joy!

Real “joy” likely begins with reflection and gratitude, but it is also a choice. As many become overwhelmed with the expectations of the holiday season, we want to encourage you to consider the lasting joy that can be experienced in music, especially when it focuses on the spiritual virtues of love, hope and peace - the impetus for our “joy-filled” celebration.

Encounter!

7:30 PM19:30

Encounter!

The liturgical mass is traditionally an opportunity to observe God’s majesty and participate in the Divine’s invitation to be both sustained and commissioned to serve. It is an encounter, if you will, with the Source of love and creation. We present you a non-traditional multi-faith version of a mass and then a more traditional but contemporary mass. May your rendezvous be enlightening.
