Niagara Ecumenical Choral Festival
"Our Gift of Song"
November 2nd...4 pm
Christ Church hosted the Niagara Ecumenical Choral Festival on November 2nd with over 100 glorious voices in the Sanctuary.
The program includes four anthems sung by the combined group as well as individual choir and bell-choir performances. Those attending were asked to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to Sister Helen's Food Pantry in Lockport. A free will offering was also taken for Food for the Poor, an international organization based in the Caribbean and Latin America.
Following the performance, a dinner of chili, soups and desserts was shared with all fellowship.
