-- The School Sisters of St. Francis invite everyone to the historic St. Joseph Chapel on Wednesday, September 5, for “The Beatitudes: Living Christ’s Call in the Maze of Daily Life.” The event is free and open to the public.
Using the ecumenical prayer style of the brothers of Taize, France, there will be readings, songs, silent reflection and prayers of intercession and adoration beginning at 6 p.m. The cantor will be Bill Erickson, with accompanist Sister. Mary Jane Wagner.
At 6:45, concert soprano Jennifer Gettel and guitarist Jay Hildebrand will extend the prayer, leading listeners more deeply into the joy, simplicity, mercy and hope of Christian life.
The focus of both the prayer and the concert will be “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
St. Joseph Chapel is located at 27th and Greenfield (1501 S. Layton Blvd.) in Milwaukee. Free parking is available in the lot behind St. Joseph Center, accessible on 29th and Orchard (Alexia Circle entrance). For more information, visit www.sssf.org.
