In honor of President’s Day and African American History Month, a one hour program called “Abe Lincoln” will take place on Sunday, February 12th at 3:30 p.m. at Ascension Church. This is a program of folk-based vocal music by Edward Lipton and related classical piano compositions performed by Gila Ducat-Lipton. The song “Abe Lincoln” will be heard in a recording sung by Ed Lipton with guitarist Daniel Louis Bloch.
Our Parish has established a Music Ministry which not only prides itself on its excellence but reflects the diversity of our community. Each Mass features music in a different style, from the grand traditional chorus at the 11 am Sunday Mass, to the energetic and passionate Walkirios at the 9:30 am Sunday Mass, to the unique Jazz Mass at 6 pm on Sunday. Though reflecting different musical experiences and cultural backgrounds, we are united in the goal for all of our musical liturgies and concerts: to offer the very best in praise and worship to our God.
