ABOUT THE MUSIC

This Sunday we welcome the “Sea Change Chorale”, singers dedicated to sharing music to help heal the world.  They often raise funds for various worthy projects through their singing.

They are under the direction of Dr. Deirdre McClure.

At our service, they will sing from the following repertoire:  “What Wondrous Love Is This” by American composer William Walker (1927-2011 A.D.); “Breaths” by living American composer Ysaye M. Barnwell (b. 1946); “Ubi Caritas” by French composer Maurice Durufle (1902-1986 A.D.); and “Walk A Mile In Your Neighbor’s Shoes” by living composer and choral director Pepper Choplin.  Please welcome this excellent choral group!

GREEN POWER AND CLYNK BAGS

Don’t forget you can help our Green Power effort at St Nicholas by using our Clynk account to recycle your returnable bottles.  Tagged bags are in a box by the front entry (on the bookshelf).  This money helps defray the extra cost of supporting renewable sources for our church electricity use.  So when you DRINK, THINK CLYNK!

BLANKETS NEEDED

St. Elizabeth’s Jubilee Center has notified us of their need for gently used woolen or cotton blankets or comforters.  They can be dropped off at St. E’s/St. Luke’s on Monday or Tuesday mornings or in the basket in our entryway.

Please no lightweight throws.
