Sunday March 29 at 3:00pm, Holy Cross will be host their annual Lenten Lessons and Carols Service. This service is patterned after a similar service at St. John's College, UK. The service will consist of Scripture readings, Carols, Hymns, and Anthems with an emphasis on exploring and preparing for the Passion of Jesus Christ.
The choirs of: Redeemer, Squirrel Hill; St. Stephen's, Wilkinsburg; and Holy Cross, Homewood will come together to provide the music for this solemn, but rewarding service. Also assisting the choirs will be musicians and choirsters from the Friends of Holy Cross' Choir, a group of good, immensely talented folks who have helped out Holy Cross in the past by lending their talents to our choir. I sat through the last choir rehearsal, and can say that the body of music to be presented will encompass a wide variety of musical styles and the blending of the three choirs plus friends will be a treat as well as a great way to prepare for Holy Week. Don't forget...Sunday March 29, 2009 at 3:00pm at Holy Cross.
