Pilgrimage: a Lenten Evening at Church of the Redeemer Mar 31

Saturday, March 16, 2019

Come, be part of “Pilgrimage: a Lenten evening” at Church of the Redeemer on March 31, 2019. The journey starts at 5:30pm with Stations of the Cross. 

There is a community dinner at 6:00pm. The journey concludes with a 7:00pm concert.

Interactive Stations of the Cross

The pilgrimage starts at 5:30pm with a symbolic walk with Jesus from his sentencing to his execution. Together, we will sing, pray, and experience Stations of the Cross in a new way.

Community Dinner

Dinner is provided in the Parish Hall at 6:00pm. Donations accepted.


The 7:00pm concert begins with meditative organ music by J. S. Bach performed by Sheila Bristow, music director at Redeemer. The concert then features Samuel Barber’s “Hermit Songs,” with Marissa Moultrie as soloist. Admission to the concert is by free will donation.

“Hermit Songs” is a 10-song cycle composed in the mid-1950s and premiered by Leontyne Price. Barber took the texts from personal notes by Irish monks in the Middle Ages on a variety of topics. 

The cycle begins and ends with the yearning for a truly sacred life. However, the interior songs include musings on beer in heaven, the nature of cats, and promiscuity.

This is the program to conclude this evening of pilgrimage:
  • Lento, from Trio Sonata No. 6, J. S. Bach (1685-1750)
    • Sheila Bristow, organ
  • Hermit Songs, Samuel Barber (1910-1981)
    • Marissa Moultrie, soprano
    • Sheila Bristow, piano
