Dear St. Agnes family,
This weekend marks the beginning of our new liturgical year with the first Sunday in Advent.  Advent is a season of hope. 2020 has been a rough year for most everyone. As we enter the new liturgical year we find signs of hope all around us.  This weekend is also Thanksgiving weekend.  In that spirit as we transition from Thanksgiving Day into Advent, I’ve programmed an instrumental prelude of “This is My Song” into the music plan for this weekend.  The melody is taken from the later portion of “Finlandia,” a tone poem by Jean Sibelius.  I came across a beautiful music video of this work that I’ve included with the links to recordings of our music for this weekend.  In this video, the melody to “This is My Song” begins at 6:09 and concludes at 8:15.  May this season of Advent and the new year bring hope, healing, and comfort.
Bobby Fisher, Director of Music Ministries
