“BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD” Advent Concerts

“BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD” Advent Concerts

As we prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ on Christmas, the season of Advent sometimes flies by without us appreciating it. There is a wonderful opportunity to experience Advent – the “Behold the Lamb of God” Advent Concert. Music written and originally performed by Andrew Peterson, features many area musicians and vocalists, especially from St. Katharine Drexel and Holy Cross of Kaukauna and Hollandtown, and St. John Nepomucene in Little Chute. It features Deacon Dave Van Eperen, Lance Lamers, Mike Van Hoof and Tim Van Eperen of St. John Nepomucene parish.

Under the leadership of Nathan Vande Hey, they are now in their 12th year of performing these in the Fox Valley and surrounding areas! It is the story of salvation history in less than an hour. No tickets required, but a free will offering will be taken, with proceeds donated to charity. This year, the program will be presented 4 times and they are listed below:

Wednesday, November 30th – Kaukauna High School at 7:00 p.m.
(sponsored by the Kaukauna Catholic Parishes)

Wednesday, December 7th – St. Nick’s in Freedom – 7:00 p.m.

Monday, December 12th – Xavier High School in Appleton – 7:00 p.m. (CIA-FMO event)

Wednesday, December 21st – St. Mary Help of Christians in Hilbert (108 S. 6th Street) – 7:00 p.m. (sponsored by the Tri-Parish Catholic Faith Communities – which includes St. John-Sacred Heart Parish in Sherwood and St. Mary of the Seven Dolors in Stockbridge.)

Check it out! Spread the word and invite your students and families. This is open to anyone. Any questions, please contact Deacon Steve Vande Hey at dcnsvandehey@kaucp.org.
