Upcoming events at Incarnation!
ATLANTA BOY CHOIR
MAY 22 AT 5:00 pm
IN THE NAVE
The Grammy Award Winning Atlanta Boy Choir,
currently appearing in this season's blockbuster movie Captain
America: Civil War, will present a concert at the Episcopal Church
of the Incarnation on Sunday afternoon, May 22nd at 5pm. This
concert which is free and open to the public will precede the
Choir's international tour of British Columbia the following week.
The forty boys and forty men who comprise this choir are heard
throughout the world in the great concert halls and with famous
orchestras. It is now in its sixtieth season under the direction of
the founder, Maestro Fletcher Wolfe.
The Choir, which visits Highlands each year, will
be accompanied by an instrumental ensemble which includes Dr. Robert
Henry, Organist and Music Director at Incarnation. Dr. Henry,
longtime accompanist for the Choir, was brought to Highlands many
years ago as artist-in-residence by Maestro Wolfe when he directed
the music at Incarnation.
Since many of the boys in the Choir come from
disadvantaged homes, those interested in supporting them can get a
reserved seat for this concert by calling the choir at 404.378.0064
or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- JULY 10
Have you wanted to know more about the Episcopal Church, its
traditions and doctrines?
Are you interested in being confirmed as a member of the Episcopal
Church or in reaffirming your confirmation?
Have you wanted to be received by the Bishop during the confirmation
and reception service?
Confirmation is an adult commitment to our baptismal vows, and that
reception is the official acceptance into the Episcopal church from
another Christian denomination.
Then we invite you to attend our Adult Inquirers Classes that will
be held each Sunday morning from 9AM until 10AM from June 5th
through July 10th, or our Youth Inquirers Classes that will be held
after the 10:30 AM service on those same Sundays (unless the Youth
class determines a more convenient time.) Both these classes will be
led by the Rev. Margaret Waters.
Bishop Porter Taylor will be coming to Incarnation on Sunday, July
17th to confirm those who have completed the classes and wish to be
confirmed or to be received.
Please sign up for these classes by contacting Kirsten Huscusson at
828-526-2968 or by email at
email@example.com. We will also have sign-up sheets
in Jones Hall and at our reception desk. Please indicate if you wish
to attend the adult or youth class.
