St. Alphonsus Christmas Concert

St. Alphonsus Christmas Concert

December 17 at 7:30 PM

Celebrate the music of Christmas in diverse and powerful ways in one amazing concert!  On December 17th, at 7:30 PM, the choirs of St. Alphonsus, along with members of the Community Renewal Chorus will present “From London to Chicago: A Christmas Concert.”

Hear Benjamin Britten’s beloved Ceremony of Carols accompanied by harp, and Gerald Finzi’s In Terra Pax, accompanied by string orchestra, harp, and percussion. The Finzi work has been described as “a miniature masterpiece that unites the familiar events of the Christmas story into a compelling musical narrative that is at once personal and universal.”

Of course, you will also delight in carol arrangements old and new, from Gospel spirituals to Fry’s Christmas in Chicago.

This is a concert not to miss. Tickets and more information at crchorus.org.

Catechists are Needed!

We are still looking for a few more catechists for our Tuesday evening Religious Education program. Contact Carlos Roman if you are interested in this blessed way to teach children and grow in your own faith.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word and Iglesia Infantil are one of the most rewarding ways to volunteer. The leaders help the youngest in our parish understand the Scriptures and participate fully in the Mass.
