“It is a privilege for the Lutheran presenting partners in this venture to share Holy Spirit Mass with our friends of all faiths – and no faith at all. We thank the Catholic community at the National Shrine for welcoming us, and we welcome all to an evening of music that celebrates our shared joy in faith,” says Bishop Graham of a musical treat on Sunday night, Oct. 22. The 64-member National Lutheran Choir (NLC) will premiere a commission piece at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Register for your free ticket. In addition to the ELCA Metro D.C. Synod, partners with NLC in this ecumenical endeavor include Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, Southeastern District; Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area (LSS/NCA) in special recognition of LSS/NCA’s 100th year celebration of service, and the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. A free will offering will benefit: the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, the Lutheran Volunteer Corps, and the Lutheran Young Adult Corps. Learn more.
