All parish musicians in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia are invited to attend Evening Prayer and receive a blessing at the annual Blessing of Musicians event Tuesday, May 13 at 7 p.m. at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia.
The Association of Musicians in Philadelphia will honor eighth graders and high school graduates who have served as music ministers in their respective parishes.
The cathedral, located at 18th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway, is also celebrating its 150th anniversary. John Romeri, archdiocesan director of liturgical music, will present a brief musical history of the cathedral and archdiocese. The Cathedral Choir, the Archdiocesan Choir and the Archdiocesan Girls’ Choir will participate. All former members of the Collegiate Choir have been invited to attend and perform with the choirs.
Both musicians and non-musicians are welcome to attend.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
