Summer Jazz Mass Returns and Continues through August
From June 2 through August 25, we return to a worship schedule that includes weekly evening Jazz Mass in the Michaux House.
Every Sunday at 5:30 p.m. through August 25, our clergy lead Richmond’s finest jazz players along with cantors from our choir and congregants through a specially designed liturgy that is open to the improvisation that is the heart of jazz music.
Readings may be from Scripture, thoughtful theologians, poetry, novels, really anything that reaches for the sacred and calls for our response. We gather around a table set with the kinds of food our Lord and his disciples might have brought for an evening meal. Sharing bread and wine and fellowship, we will invite the presence of the Holy Spirit in our Eucharistic feast.
This is a service that makes its foundation on our traditions and derives its energy from jazz. It is just the way you would want to conclude your Sunday and a perfect place to invite your friends and family to join in. Great music, great liturgy, great spirit and great goodness abound. Please come often.
