The Episcopal Church of the Holy Innocents
Please join us on Saturday, December 1st at 4pm for our Annual Community Messiah Sing.
Our guest choir and soloists will be The New Jersey Chamber Singers (NJCS), with conductor, Reid Masters and organist, Karen Miske.
The evening will include holiday selection by NJCS. If you are a singer, you are invited to bring a score (if you don’t have one, you may borrow one from us!), and sing along.
If you would rather not sing, please join us anyway. We will have special seating for our non-singers, which will allow them to better appreciate the beautiful music that is created.
A free will offering will be taken and naturally, there will be a smashing reception in Martin Hall following the “sing”.
Please take time to join us for this event. It is not to be missed! Celebrate all that we have to be thankful for through music!

Ellen Dondero, Minister of Music
Before our service begins, a quiet prelude is played on the organ, allowing all to enter the church and have some time for quiet prayer and/or healing. The choral anthem at the offertory helps us focus on the readings that day, as well as the church season in general, and during communion, the music is often particularly reflective, creating a pensive and prayerful tone. The liturgy centered hymns allow us to make music together in His name. All of this is offered to the Glory of God and can bring us closer to Him. And it is so worth getting there!
