Hannah Brewer, organist, and Emma Mildred Riggle, soprano, present a recital of music from the English Baroque.
On Sunday, September 2, our Summer Schedule ceases, and we return to our regular schedule of Sunday worship. At the beginning of the 10:00 A.M. service we will offer a special prayer over our students returning to school - our annual "Blessing of the Backpacks."
8:00 A.M.: Said Mass
10:00 A.M.: Sung Mass with Hymns
In our continuing series of talks by parishioners at Ascension, our Minister of Music Emma Riggle joins us to share some of her work in musicology. The presentation will take us through musical depictions of Christ's resurrection throughout history.
A light reception will follow the talk.
Join us for a joyful and solemn Mass on the evening of Maundy Thursday. The Ascension Choir will sing Fauré's Messe basse pour voix de femmes, and motets by Rene Clausen and Maurice Duruflé, as well as leading us in hymns of the Passion.
On Palm Sunday, we will worship together in one combined Mass at 9:00 A.M., beginning with the Liturgy of the Palms in our Parlor, and a procession into the sanctuary. Soloists from the Ascension Choir will offer anthems during worship. Join us for this special time of worship as a parish family!
