Praise the Lord 2012

Praise the Lord 2012

The church of St. Nicholas, Barberton, resonated with glorious singing for the fourth annual "Praise the Lord" Festival of Choirs, Sunday, April 22. The participating choirs that contributed to this wonderful concert were the Parma Byzantine Eparchial Choir, St. Hilary Catholic Church choir, and both the youth and adult choirs of St. Nicholas. The special guest choir was the Summit Choral Society Masterworks Chorale, under the direction of Mr. Robert Mollard.  The Masterworks Chorale presented five selections, all of which were sung in Church Slavonic.

Almost filling the church to capacity, the audience of over 350 people thoroughly appreciated the musical talents of all the choirs that

gave of their time and talent to provide this time of edification. Among those present were his Grace, Bishop John Kudrick, and his

Grace, Metropolitan Archbishop Jan Babjak.  Making a special visit to St. Nicholas parish, the archbishop, together with Bishop John, concelebrated a Hierarchal Divine Liturgy earlier that morning.

Bricks and mortar could barely contain the thunderous volume created when everyone joined together in singing the closing song, "Let There Be Peace On Earth".   Having been lifted up in spirit by the concert, it was apparent that this singing came not only from the words on the paper of the program, but also from the joy of the heart.  Both bishops then addressed the audience with words of inspiration. This enthusiasm carried over to the social hall where fellowship was enjoyed along with refreshments provided by the parishoners.

This afternoon of celebration was made possible through the diligent organizational efforts of Rita Benya. We appreciatge her loving devotion to musical worship, and thank her for making this event possible.  (By James Senderak)
