Looking for a beautiful way to deepen your Lenten devotion? St. Charles Borromeo Seminary will host a free concert including Scripture readings, prayers and musical selections performed by seminarians on Sunday, March 6 at 4 p.m. in the seminary’s St. Martin’s Chapel.
The annual concert to prepare for the Easter season will be led by the seminary’s director of sacred music, Rudy Lucente. The theme this year is “Adoramus Te, Christe – We Adore You, O Christ.” (Watch a video of the seminary choice rehearsing, below.)
Each year the concert is organized and performed entirely by seminarians, who they collect a free will offering from guests and designate a charity of their choice as the beneficiary.
This year the Sisters of St. Joseph Welcome Center in Kensington will benefit from the proceeds. Since March 2003, this ministry of the religious sisters has addressed the needs of newcomers to America and the Philadelphia region by offering English language classes, citizenship preparation courses, computer skills programs and a variety of other social services.
Founded in 1832, St. Charles Seminary has formed Catholic men for the priesthood in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and dioceses throughout the country.
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.
