MILWAUKEE - Jan. 9, 2014 - PRLog -- In anticipation of the World Day for Consecrated Life, religious communities of women and men in the Milwaukee Archdiocese will present their second annual musical celebration on Sunday, January 26 at 3:00 p.m. at St. Joseph Chapel, 1501 S. Layton Blvd., Milwaukee.

“In Joyful Hope” will feature a 60-voice massed choir under the direction of Charles Q. Sullivan, executive and artistic director of Early Music Now, along with the School Sister of St. Francis Chapel Singers and vocal and instrumental soloists. The concert is free and open to the public. A free will offering will be accepted.

“Seeing women and men from ten different communities join their voices, their hearts, and their spirits was a powerful living witness of consecrated life in the Church,” said Sister Mary Jane Wagner, Director of the School Sisters of St. Francis Music Ministry and an organizer of last year and this year’s event.

“The concert is an example of just one of the many ways that the communities of religious women and men collaborate together in our archdiocese,” said Sister Mary Lee Grady, SDS.  “We welcome everyone to join us as we sing and play as a joyful witness of our faith and our lives.”

Sister Marianne Kempa, SSND, sees great potential in this year’s concert.

“I hope that it will be a joy-filled inspiring experience for participants as well as attendees—a time for all to be grateful that we are God’s people working together to bring joy and hope to our world!”

St. Joseph Chapel is located at St. Joseph Center, the international motherhouse of the School Sisters of St. Francis. Ample free parking is available in the School Sisters of St. Francis lot at 29th Street and Orchard Street.
