  • Stations of the Cross – Bach’s ‘The Well Tempered Clavier’

    March 23, 2023

    Wednesday, March 29th 
    7pm – 8pm
    St. Anne Church

    Bach, as all Baroque composers, attempted to express a single emotion with each piece. The Well-Tempered Clavier is a collection in two books of 96 different pieces, four in each key. It was frankly revolutionary for its time, and is still revered by pianists, organists, and composers. With so many opportunities to give musical garb to emotion, there is a lot to choose from.

    The idea of doing a Stations of the Cross with Bach’s music acting as the commentary came from the famous fugue in C# minor from the first book. Tradition has it that the theme is in the shape of a cross and so it is often played on Good Friday. It is also one of the most emotional pieces of music I know, while simultaneously being one of the most intellectual. It wasn’t hard to go through the books and find other pieces suitable for the other stations.

    The result is more of a concert than a traditional stations, but for this pianist it is a work of devotion and prayer. Your listening is your participation in the prayer.

  • Alpha

    September 1, 2022

    Join a Conversation


    Tuesdays, October 4th – December 13th, 2022
    7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
    St. Anne’s Nartex

    We’ve been speaking about it for a long time and the moment is finally here! Alpha is great place to invite and accompany a friend who is curious about faith or religion. What’s wonderful about Alpha is that it provides a warm space for everyone.  Alpha invites guests from all backgrounds to share a meal and conversation around some of life’s biggest questions.  It is designed to provide guests an opportunity to connect with one another while sharing thoughts, ideas, and opinions in a safe and caring environment. Alpha helps bring people together while providing the chance to encounter Jesus.  Love Listens. Join the conversation.

    The same Alpha content is run all over the world, by Christians of all traditions, sharing the good news of Jesus. Find out more about Alpha in the Catholic Context and what church pastors have to say about Alpha.

    Each session has 3 key ingredients:

    Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table or a quick online catch-up, times of connecting are important. All sessions start with a time of connection over a meal to relax and build friendships.

    The Alpha talks are designed to engage people from all walks of life and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues of life and faith and unpack the basics of Christian belief, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?”, and “How does God guide us?”

    One of the most important parts of any Alpha is the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic in a small group format. Guests hear from others and have an opportunity to contribute/share in a judgment-free environment.
