The invitation came as a complete surprise. “Would Oasis be willing to be one of the beneficiaries of our fund-raising Christmas Cantate?” St. Anne’s had long dropped off food drive donations. And every Ash Wednesday we welcomed their youth to our food bank. But they had their own community dinner each month (our summer students had attended there a couple of times). And their Cantate might be pretty “high church” for our community members. (In fact they don’t even spell “Cantate” the same way we do.) But the offer was genuine. In fact, St. Anne’s arranged for some free tickets for our community members who could not afford the $15 cost. And quite a few were interested. What a blessing! Thank you St. Anne’s. I look forward to see our community members there this Sunday at 3:30 pm. Some tickets remain at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/st-annes-community-cantate-tickets-38849306321?aff=eac2.
