Prepare for Lent: New Service Music

This year our service music for Lent will be the Communion Service in D Minor by Thurlow Weed. Thurlow is a colleague and friend of Miss Kathy, and we have sung a few of his hymns in the past couple of years. If you’d like a heads up, use the link HERE for a video; it’s quickly learned. The music will be on cards in the pews starting on Ash Wednesday.
