Annual ‘Sounds of the Season’ concert to benefit ‘Keep the Heat On’

PROVIDENCE — On Sunday, December 14 at 3 p.m., the Gregorian Concert Choir and Festival Orchestra will present a concert entitled “The Sounds of the Season” at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul. The concert, which will feature the music of Advent and Christmas, will benefit Bishop Tobin’s “Keep the Heat On Challenge,” which assists poor and low income families with utility expenses. Tickets for the concert are $10 per person and may be purchased by calling the Cathedral office at 331-2434. Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the concert.

Confession prepares the way of the Lord
In Advent we reflect on the words of St. John the Baptist: “Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight his paths.” Preparing for the Lord’s coming—preparing for Christmas—is really very simple: acknowledging that we’re sinners. To welcome the Savior of the world, to realize why Jesus had to come at Christmas in the first place, we have to acknowledge that we’re sinners in need of a Savior.
