Sunday, March 4, 2018     Taize Prayer

Plans are underway for a beautiful prayer on Sunday evening, March 4 at Christ the King. If you are interested and able to play or sing that evening, well, blessed are we! (SATB Choir and cantors needed).

A rehearsal for singers will be held on Monday, February 26, 6:30 p.m. at Christ the King Church. Instrumentalists may join us at 7:15 to rehearse.

We will also rehearse/warm up on Sunday, March 4 at 5:15 p.m. in church. You are invited to the National Pastoral Musicians soup supper and meeting which will be held in the Msgr. Ryan Center at 6:00 p.m. Then we will return to church at 6:45 to begin some quiet music before the Taize Prayer begins.

How I am looking forward to this beautiful time of prayer and reflection. Many thanks! Dawn Riske []
