The 21st Annual Eccles Organ Festival presents
Ghislain Leroy and Romain Leleu
The 21st Season of the Eccles Organ Festival continues Sunday November 9, 2014 at 8:00 pm at The Cathedral of the Madeleine with a recital by the French duo Ghislain Leroy (organ) and Romain Leleu (trumpet).
Hailing from Northern France, and educated in the National Conservatoires Supérieurs de Musique in Paris and Lyon, Ghislain Leroy and Romain Leleu revisit since 2006 the emblematic duo Trumpet and Organ. Artists with a rare musical empathy, with a strong commitment to share the passion for their instruments, they propose in their recitals a large panorama from all epochs and styles.
All performances of the Eccles Organ Festival are open to the public and free of charge.View items...
Advent is a season of expectation, preparation and hope during which we anticipate the coming of Christ. It is a season for which we ponder the last and ultimate things in life, setting aside the petty, mundane and unimportant. It is a season of Prophets: Isaiah, Zechariah, John the Baptist and others. Indeed, Isaiah challenges us with this word from the Lord: “I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.” Please consider joining us for any of the opportunities listed in the information found below. We wish you all a very blessed season of Advent.

Have you ever wondered how to progress in holiness according to God's call to you?
Do you realize that the Blessed Mother is waiting to help you become all that God desires for you?
"The surest, easiest, shortest, and the most perfect means" to holiness is total consecration to Jesus through Mary, according to Fr. Michael Gaitley, who quotes St. Louis de Montfort. Marian Consecration is a 33 day process representing the 33 years of Jesus' life on earth. Join a small group sponsored by the Cathedral Council of Catholic Women (CCW) beginning in November as we go through the consecration process with the book and DVD set called 33 Days to Morning Glory facilitated by Mary Gesicki, a Lay Ecclesial Minister and spiritual director from Park City, Utah.
Our first meeting is on Monday, November 3, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Adult Education Room in Scanlan Hall. Consecration day is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Monday, December 8 at 6:00 p.m. The group meets for an hour and a half for six consecutive weeks. Meetings begin with prayer and a DVD introductory session by Fr. Michael Gaitley, followed by discussion and sharing, and end with a half hour DVD lecture.
