Beatitudes Prayer and Concert

April Beatitudes Theme is Mercy

Beatitudes is a monthly opportunity to spend an evening in prayer and reflection with the help of beautiful music. The evening begins with a half-hour prayer service using the ecumenical prayer style of the brothers of Taizé. It includes readings, songs, silent reflection and prayers of intercession and adoration. We will be led by cantor William Erickson, accompanied by Sister Mary Jane Wagner.


A concert will extend the prayer, leading the listener more deeply into the joy, the simplicity, the mercy and the hope of Christian life. The School Sisters of St. Francis’ Music Ministry is delighted to welcome our musical guests, the Gaudete Chorale, an ecumenical choir under the direction of Brian McLinden.


The theme of our April 3 prayer and concert is “Blessed are those who show mercy to others: they will be shown mercy.” All are welcome and invited to join our sisters in St. Joseph Chapel for this Lenten evening of beauty.
