Can you believe that Holy Smoke! is coming up tomorrow? Word is getting out—pray that the number of BBQ Cookoff Entries is enough to meet the appetites of our guests! Hmmm. . . maybe I should have included roast quail among the categories. . . and then again, maybe not!
Continue to post about Holy Smoke! in your social networks and to talk about it to your family and friends. Now is the time to strike up a conversation with that neighbor whose BBQ fills your street with mouth-watering aromas! Now is the time to let your music-loving friends know that the Oblates of Blues will be playing from 1-3! Now is the acceptable time for showing folks that Holy Trinity knows how to welcome and nourish the body of Christ!
We hope that you will join us at 6:30pm on Wednesday of Holy Week (April 1) for the debut of these original blues compositions by Hugh Page, performed live by the Oblates of Blues.
Tenebrae (Latin for “shadows” is taken from the office of Matins and Lauds during the last three days of Holy Week. With readings from the book of Lamentations, Tenebrae focuses on the mourning withdrawal of the apostles from Jesus in the hours of his Passion. This spiritually moving service is thus particularly well-suited to the blues idiom.
