2018 Choir Pilgrimage to Washington National Cathedral
The Cathedral Choir’s long-awaited pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. is just about here! In a matter of weeks, we’ll be heading up to begin our July 18–22 choral residency at the Washington National Cathedral. It’s been a long journey to get to this point. Over the course of the past eighteen months, the Cathedral Choir has been preparing for this opportunity both musically and financially with a rigorous schedule of rehearsing, singing, and fundraising. We’ve been blessed with an exceptional team of volunteers who have worked tirelessly during this time to plan the trip and ensure all details were covered.
During the five days we’re in Washington, our choir will sing for four Evensong services and a Sunday morning Eucharist. Our precise service schedule will be as follows:
Wednesday, July 18: Evensong at 5:30 p.m.
Thursday, July 19: Evensong at 5:30 p.m.
Friday, July 20: Evensong at 5:30 p.m.
Saturday, July 21: No Services (free day)
Sunday, July 22: Holy Eucharist at 10 a.m./Evensong at 4 p.m.
In addition to our services at the Cathedral, choir members are planning various excursions to the many wonderful cultural and historical offerings on hand in our nation’s capital. On behalf of the Cathedral Choir, I’d like to offer many thanks to all the wonderful people in the St. John’s community who have so graciously helped and supported us in our preparation for this trip.Without your time, contributions, and prayers none of this would ever have materialized. I, along with everyone in the choir, look forward to this being an edifying spiritual experience both for ourselves and for those whom we sing.
It is truly a blessing and honor to have the privilege of taking our musical ministry to others. Do continue to keep us in your prayers for a safe trip, and pray also that we are able to return from this experience renewed and with a newfound sense of how we can communicate the majesty, beauty, and wisdom of God through our music.
