IV Advent and a Concert

On Sunday, December 18, at 2 PM, there is a Christmas concert, dubbed The Joyful Sounds of the Season, at St. Matthew Church in Cranston, RI. St. Matthew's choir, along with some professionals, an orchestra, and Sacred Heart's own Brian Michael Page at the organ, conducted by Kyle Jameson, will perform works of Rutter, Mozart, Holst, and Willcocks, as well as selections from Handel's Messiah.  If you're in the area, come and listen!  Admission is free!

But not before the Masses for the Fourth Sunday of Advent at Sacred Heart...
