Festival of Marian Hymns

Come enjoy our new May 5 Festival of Marian hymns at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption!  We offer an innovative “Lessons and Carols” format to honor Our Mother. The congregation (not just an audience!) will sing together simple versions of classic and new hymns to Mary. The song will be followed by spiritual reflection.  And then the gorgeous sacred polyphonic form of the hymn will be sung by a 16-voice-professional choir, affectionately dubbed “The Benedict Sixteen”.  The worship service begins at 4 p.m.

Date: Mother’s Day 2018
