Dec. 13
Plan to attend ‘Answer the Call—Lessons & Carols’

All are welcome to attend “Answer the Call—Lessons & Carols,” an Advent concert for the whole family to promote vocations in the Diocese of Erie.

The concert will be held Dec. 13 from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. in Cathedral Prep’s H. David Bowes Auditorium, W. 10th and Myrtle streets, Erie.

More than 50 singers from area parishes will be featured, along with music composed by Erie musician Michael Malthaner. Informational material on vocations will be available that evening, as well as an opportunity afterward for young men and women to speak with clergy and religious. A free will offering will support discernment retreats for men and women. Attached is a flier that parish staffs are asked to post in their buildings.
