The Episcopal Church of The Holy Innocents 


The Choir of Holy Innocents will be taking off the rest of the summer. Please thank our members for their musical offerings, as well as their time and dedication. I know the choral music will be missed until they return in the fall. We have been very fortunate to have new members join us over the past several months. We are always looking for new members – particularly tenors, basses, and sopranos! If you are at all interested, or know someone who may be interested, please contact me using the email address below.

Yours in Christ,

Ellen Dondero, Minister of Music


Our 2019 concert series, which ran March – June was a great success with wonderfully talented performers, and pleasingly large and appreciative audiences! Special thanks to Fr. Dan Hinkle, Deacon Judy Krom, the Wardens and Vestry and all of our Parish Family, as well as a large number of community members, for their support, appreciation, and encouragement. Extra special thanks to all of our choir members and friends, who made the reception after each concert absolutely wonderful. All of our performers and guests felt very welcomed into our “home” and expressed how much they enjoyed the total experience.

Bravo/Brava! Let’s do it again in 2020!!!

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!
