Year of Hope
A Musical Experience
How does one define hope? In a world where there seems to be so much hopelessness, hope can feel like nothing more than a distant and elusive concept. However, on Sept 28th (Today Sunday) , 7:00 p.m., our talented young members of the community will present HOPE - A Musical Experience here in celebration of the Year of Hope and the Feast of the Canadian Martyrs. Join us for a night of beautiful music and hear God’s message of Hope.
