OLL News: Knights, Santa and "Messiah"
NC Rally and March for Life
will start in a new location this year
, in front of the General Assembly, the concrete area between the NC Museum of History and the NC Museum of Natural Science
In December, Our Lady of Lourdes Cecelia's Choir presented
A Family Messiah.
A shortened version of Handel's Messiah was presented by Our Lady of Lourdes Music Ministry including many of our own cantors, Cecelia's Choir and a small parishioner orchestra. It was excellent!
Many, many thanks to Brenda Accurso, our Music Director, for making it all happen!
The performance was recorded by Jimmie Brown and myself. We plan to show the video recording in the Bernadette Center classroom
after the 9am Mass on January 19.
Please join us! Free coffee and a very fine musical performance.
