Sometimes a daily cup of good news comes in stories and songs that don’t seem to have anything to do with church. The story and songs of “Les Miserables” tell of pain and redemption, law and grace. Faith leads us to think about those very things all the time, whether they are connected directly to church or not.
So join us this Saturday, January 31 at 7:00 for Les Miz! at Bistro St. Alban’s, because laughter, community, music, and joy are all part of a life of faith too.
Listen, sing-along if you want, and join St. Alban’s choir members for a fun evening of music from Broadway’s Les Miserables and light refreshments, raising money for the choir’s trip to France in July. Tickets are $25 and available at the door on Saturday. Doors open at 6:30. (Don’t have money for a ticket? We’ll have some angel tickets available)
We’ll have the words for you to sing along, or simply come and listen to your favorite songs: I dreamed a dream, Castle on a Cloud, Master of the House, Do you hear the people sing?, Bring him home, On my own, and much more. Your help makes it possible for those who could not go otherwise to join the choir’s pilgrimage to France in July, where they will sing in the Cathedrals and Abbey Churches of Mont-St. Michel, Rouen, Bayeux, Paris and Chartres. Why are they doing this? Because pilgrimage, spiritual growth, commitment, and dedication are also all parts of a life of faith, and nothing helps foster those things like traveling together and singing in some of the world’s most important religious sites.
We hope to see you on Saturday at 7:00 in Satterlee Hall. [Les Miz flyer]

Gavroche, le gamin. I counsel the novel to anyone. It is full of bitter harmonies about Jesus.
