A Note from the Choir Director

I can hardly believe – the choir season is coming to an end! We have had an epic year: back in September, we had our first in-person rehearsals since the pandemic began, but with serious safety precautions in place and our numbers in liturgy very restricted. For the St. Michael’s Singers, that means that we really have only had a handful of full-choir liturgies. I have been inspired by their ability to sing glorious liturgy with a rotating roster of singers, even to the point where from week to week and service to service it was as if each featured a unique ensemble.

A Note from Sherman

On the Third Sunday in Lent, we heard St Paul remind the Corinthian Christians, “So if you think you are standing, watch out that you do not fall.” This verse has been reverberating in my head this week, as we keep hearing of fully vaccinated and boosted friends testing positive for Covid. Hospitalizations and deaths are nowhere near what they were even months ago, but we are not out of the woods yet. So, be careful out there, and be patient. We’re going to be in this yo-yo-ey world for a while.
