March 28, 2017

You have have heard by now, that my last Sunday at Holy Covenant is April 9, 2017.  While June was the suggested date for my departure, I have chosen to leave on this wonderfully, musical Sunday.  

The children, youth and adults will present music that day along with a jazz band accompanying The Gospel Mass by Robert Ray.  I hope you will come and help me celebrate my 18 1/2 years with the great people of Holy Covenant  Many children, youth and adults have been a part of Sunday mornings, Cabarets, Musicals, Fine Arts Camps, Choir Tours, Taize services and more events during my tenure.  I love you all with all my heart and give God thanks every day for each one of you!

Here is the schedule for my next two weeks with you:

Wednesday, March 29 – Covenant Carillons at 6:30 pm and Adult Choir at 7:30 pm.  If you would like to join the adult choir for the Gospel Mass, please come to this rehearsal.

Sunday, April 2, will feature the Covenant Carillons playing a fun arrangement of Dry Bones.  The Adult Choir anthem is Requiem by Craig Hella Johnson.  A solo or small group is needed for the 8:30 service.

Sunday, April 2 – YOUTH will rehearsal the Antiphonal Processional at their rehearsal at 2:15 pm in the Sanctuary.   Assignments are:   Shelbey, Tuba; Jayda, Trumpet; Handbells, Preston, Amy and Sage.  This is an important rehearsal.   Youth may come on Wednesday, April 5 at 7:30 for one run through of the Antiphonal with the Adults prior to Sunday (not required).

Wednesday, April 5:  Covenant Carillons at 6:30 pm, Adult Choir – Full Rehearsal of Gospel Mass with the Band at 7:30 pm.   Come with problem areas marked so we can get the most out of this rehearsal. This rehearsal may run past 9:00 pm. 

Sunday, April 9 – 7:30 am arrival for Adult Choir run through of the Mass.  8:15 am for children, youth and adults rehearsal of the Antiphonal Processional.  The Elementary Choir sings at both services and the Pre-School choir, only at 11:00 am.  Pre-schoolers should arrive at 10:45 am to the choir room for preparation.   Dress is Sunday best for all on April 9.

It was announced on Sunday that there is a reception scheduled for me, between services on April 9.
