Concert by Monastic Сhoir of St Elisabeth Convent, Minsk
Concert at St Michael's Wednesday 29 May at 7pm
The Monastic Сhoir of St Elisabeth Convent, Minsk, Belarus, consisting of the Сonvent sisters will be touring Great Britain between May 25th and June 2nd with a series of charitable concerts.
The concerts will consist of two parts: worship chants and spiritual songs. Along with well-known favourites the choir will be presenting several new pieces, selected for the tour.
The concerts will be succeeded by small fairs, displaying items made in the Convent workshops. All proceeds from the concerts and the fairs will go to support far-reaching social work that the sisters of St Elisabeth Convent do in hospitals, boarding homes, clinics and orphanages. The Convent also operates two rehabilitation centres for the homeless, ex-prisoners and those suffering from alcohol and drug addictions. The Sisters’ work is aimed at bringing these people back to the fullness of life. Many will remember hearing about this work when Sister Olga visited St Michael’s last year.
