INVITATION FROM THE CONGRESS MUSICAL DIRECTOR
Dear Musician & Friend:
“Rise Up! ˇLevántate!” is the theme of the 2018 Los
Angeles Religious Education Congress and is based on the Gospel
reading of the Sunday of Congress: the raising of Lazarus from the
dead. Estela and Rodolfo García-López have composed a dynamic theme
song this year.
In acknowledging your ongoing commitment to music ministry, I extend
an invitation to you to participate in Congress Choir 2018. The
combined talents of nearly 300 musicians comprise the group that
will provide the music for the final liturgies on Sunday, March 18,
2018. Over 19,000 people attend these liturgies. I hope that in
considering this invitation, you’ll decide to join us. I promise
you, it is an experience to remember.
