The Sunday School program includes musical activities for special performances at Early Church and other occasions. On October 5, 2019, the children presented their original “Song of Francis” during the St. Francis Day celebrations, which concluded the Instruments of Peace series devoted to St. Francis and his concerns for peace. The singers flew the bird puppets they made in honor of St. Francis and his love for all animals. The words of the song follow:
We care for everyone, and everything
We care for the earth for the earth has everything.
Where there is hatred, let me bring love.
Let me spread kindness on the wings of a dove.
If someone needs shelter, let me receive.
Make me an instrument of your peace.
Music at the 11:15 am Holy Eucharist
Music is an integral part of parish worship. It fortifies and deepens the words of hymns that we sing and inspires our participation in worship. Director of Music and Organist, Gregory D’Agostino, plays the landmark 1925 E.M. Skinner pipe organ, which, along with voices of our regular singers and other artists, illuminates the liturgy and enhance the beauty of our 11:15 am Holy Eucharist. Guest singers and other artists frequently provide variety and inspiration to our worship as well as to informal gatherings.
