Early this week the Chancel Choir received this kind note from our Rector, Noah:
“I know it was a big weekend for the choir, and I just wanted to write and say thank you for all that you do! Mike's Cafe was fabulous, with both music and food. And then the next morning kicking off Lent with services in the morning AND evening. Last night was an important offering as we seek to connect and come together across our city.
Thank you for your faithfulness and leadership. Know that I am grateful.”
Just how busy was the five day period from Ash Wednesday through Sunday? Here’s what I posted on our Parish Face Book Page:
“What an amazing five days! Ash Wednesday liturgies, rehearsals, jazz at Mikes Cafe and accompanying our great choir soloists, two Sunday morning Lent Ones, sang the Great Litany with Noah H. Evans and Rich Williams, Gibbons and Farrant with my wonderful chancel choir, presented on the history of Cantatas at Adult Forum, and finished the day with choir and Bishop Dorsey McConnell, officiant, opening tonight’s session of Church Without Walls and our wonderful musical guests from Rodman St., Baptist Church, Alton Mitchell music director. Whew!
We have been born to do many things but to do them, we are Blessed!!”
St. Paul’s is indeed blessed because of our music ministers and appreciative parish. Our love to you all!
