In 2014 Holy Cross Church has been celebrating its 150th year anniversary. The Choral Festival has been asked by Fr Tom Crean P.P. to take part in these celebrations and we have suggested that a Carol Service would be appropriate given the time of year (Advent) and 100’s of choristers in Kenmare.
Your choir is invited to take part. We need nine choirs to sing nine Advent themed carols between nine readings from the gospels.
This is not a concert. It will be a solemn ecumenical liturgical service that will be a fitting end to the Church’s jubilee year and a wonderful start to the Advent and Christmas season in Kenmare.
It will take place in Holy Cross Church on Saturday 29th November immediately after the prize-giving in Pobailscoil Inbhear Sceine at about 6.45 p.m. Whilst final arrangements have still to be worked out it is expected that each choir will be allocated seating in the Church and will sing in-situ.
Please let us know if you would like to take part. It is expected to take one hour and will be followed by Mass at 8.00 p.m.
