Holy Cross Choir members part of "Celebration of our Faith in Music"

Multi-cultural celebration for Black History Month

Update: The Holy Cross choir did not travel to this function, but they did travel to the UNC Newman Center the week prior, in a 'choir swap' among two of the Franciscan Conventual parishes in our deanery. Holy Cross was pleased to welcome the UNC Newman choir - and both parishes enjoyed celebrating with their visiting choirs. Plans are to continue with future 'choir swaps.' 

Members of the Holy Cross Gospel Choir are among participants in the ‘Celebration of our Faith in Music’ to be held from 2-4 PM on Sunday, February 7, from 4-6:00 PM at St. Ann Catholic Church in Fayetteville. The multi-cultural celebration is sponsored by the Diocese of Raleigh’s Office of African Ancestry Ministry & Evangelization as part of Black History Month.

Also participating are choirs from St. Ann, Fayetteville; the Francophone-Swahili Choir; St. Patrick Church; Sacred Heart Cathedral; and the Diocesan AAMEN Choir.

The celebration will include prayer and scripture reading; but mainly it is an opportunity to showcase the musical gifts and talents of the people who serve us each weekend at our liturgies. The event concludes with a light reception, in time for people to catch the Panthers in the SuperBowl.

This event is open to the public at no charge, but the courtesy of an rsvp is requested to allow us plan appropriately. For more information or to rsvp, contact Lauren Green, AAMEN director, at 919821-9763 or send her an email message at lauren.green@raldioc.org
