Join us this Sunday for a musical celebration of the animal kingdom by CUC’s Choir directed by Lisa N. Meyer and accompanied by Georgianna Pappas in honor of our special Blessing of the Animals service. Consider arriving by 10am in order to hear a special Music for All Ages presentation by Lisa and the Choir, which will preview our December 21 production of Gian Carlo Menotti’s children’s opera Amahl and the Night Visitors. This work embodies themes of honesty, forgiveness, and love.
