Crescendo International Choir will be performing its first spring concert Saturday, April 6 at Iglesia de Santa Maria Del Mar on Calle de Elcano in La Zenia at 7:30 pm. Tickets are 10 euros a person. Money raised at this concert will go towards supporting the church building fund of The Parish of the Risen Christ, also in La Zenia.
The Parish of the Risen Christ Ecumenical Temple hosts services for people of the following faiths: Catholics, Romanian Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Lutheran and Anglican, according to church member Maggi Bray. Part of the building is also used to host meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous, a drug-related support group as well as periodic community association meetings.
Using the church to reach out and serve the community is important to the Parish of the Risen Christ. “This is what Christianity is about, isn’t it?” asked Maggi Bray. For more information about the concert or for tickets, you can contact Ms. Bray at 672-827-668.
