The Philadelphia Catholic Gospel Mass Choir, under the direction of Tonya Taylor-Dorsey, will join hundreds of singers, musicians, and evangelizers for “A Soulful Christmas” Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Cultural Campus.

Now in its ninth year, “A Soulful Christmas” is a collaboration among community-based choirs, area pastors, praise dancers, and instrumentalists for an evening of worship and music.

Father Stephen D. Thorne, Chairperson of the Archbishop’s Commission on Racial Healing, will join other faith leaders in offering a word of hope.

The Philadelphia Catholic Gospel Mass Choir was established in 2014 in preparation for the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia. Combining the voices from various parishes within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the choir sings for masses, revivals, celebrations, and the annual Soulful Christmas Concert at the Kimmel Center.
