There are very few instances where Mercyhurst students get to travel outside of our beloved state of Pennsylvania. It’s for this reason, and many others, that the Chapel Choir and Liturgical Dance Ensemble members have been so excited lately.
They will have the opportunity to venture to Tampa, Fla., over spring break. The two groups will be giving a program that was performed last April at Emmanuel Presbyterian Church’s Faith Café to be performed at a mixture of school and church venues.
The program that will be performed showcases a healthy mix of liturgical pieces and contemporary Christian music along with praise and worship.
Along with performing for a vast number of individuals, the groups will also be recruiting future Mercyhurst students and may have the opportunity to sing for the daily masses throughout the week.
The weeklong trip will include the multitude of Masses and performances along with a possible trip to Universal Studios in Walt Disney World. The Chapel Choir and Liturgical Dance Ensemble will also be spreading their talent and good will to many sub-divisions of Christianity including Catholic, Evangelical and Jesuit churches.
“Despite our small numbers, we’re grateful for the support from Campus Ministry to make this trip possible,” said senior Brittany Barko.
On top of having the tremendous opportunity to showcase their faith and talent to various peoples in the Tampa area, the Chapel Choir and Liturgical Dance Ensemble are getting the incredible chance to spend their spring breaks in an unbeatable climate.
