A Lenten Experience; Choices of the Disciples
March 10 & 11 7:30PM
Gloriæ Dei Cantores and Elements Theatre Company collaborate to offer A Lenten Experience: Choices of the Disciples in vignettes of sacred music and written word. Lent is a liturgical season forty days before Easter, a season of penance, reflection and a renewal of Baptism, a time of the year lending us opportunity to stop, look and listen anew. It’s a time for the lens of our soul to take a look through God’s eyes, to see and hear new insights, to be reminded and freshly inspired.
Through this renewed perspective, Gloriæ Dei Cantores and Elements Theatre Company give A Lenten Experience exploring the concepts of trust, betrayal of that trust, and the opportunity for reconciliation. When trust is violated, one is lead to separation and emotions of loneliness, misunderstanding, despair. If offered the opportunity for forgiveness, will it be accepted or rejected? Come experience the disciples Peter, Andrew, Judas, plus Mary, Mother of God, Mary Magdalene, and others whose lives were forever changed by their decisions in the face of mercy and forgiveness. This Lent, recall these journeys that reflect every man’s sorrows, sacrifices, or joys, that result from the choices we make when coming into contact with the power of forgiveness.
Location: Church of the Transfiguration, Rock Harbor, Orleans, MA (5 Bay View Drive).
