The Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul in Philadelphia will present its annual Christmas concert, “Prayer for Peace,” on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 2 p.m. Due to current COVID-19 guidelines regarding in-person gatherings, the concert will be held virtually.
All are invited to join in the Cathedral Basilica Schola and instrumentalists for an afternoon of peace and joy. This year’s program will include works by Abbie Betinis, Frank La Rocca, Julian Wachner and William Walton, as well as beloved Christmas carols for all to sing along.
Tickets for the “Prayer for Peace” virtual concert are available for purchase now and throughout the Christmas season – buy tickets here.
A link will be emailed to you on the day of the concert, or any subsequent day after Sunday, Dec. 13 when a ticket is purchased.
Father Dennis Gill, rector of the Cathedral Basilica and Charlene Angelini, director of Cathedral Parish Music, recently released a special video invitation to the concert – see it below.
