Easter in Memory of Her

Mosaic of a woman

On Holy Saturday, in anticipation of Easter Day, we take time out to reflect and remember the women — those who followed Jesus to Jerusalem and stood beside him at the cross, burial and resurrection.

This innovative musical performance and meditation imagines the thoughts and prayers of Mary the Mother, the woman at the well, the woman with nard, Mary of Bethany and Mary Magdalene as they remember their times with Jesus and endure the sorrow of the cross.

Join Brigid’s Place and members of the Houston Chamber Choir for a meditative hour of music with an original script by April DeConick and Betty Adam.

Start: April 4, 2015 4:00 pm
End: April 4, 2015 5:00 pm
Venue: Christ Church Cathedral
