This concert was produced in memory of the 59 (+) individuals who lost their lives while living on the streets of El Paso County in 2018. The concert featured John Rutter’s Requiem.
A Requiem Mass is traditionally offered at a funeral service. The Requiem commends the soul of the deceased into God’s care, and offers an opportunity for lament and mourning for those who remain behind.
In addition to the Requiem, we will share songs of both lament and celebration for our community. We also shared the stories of those who have experienced homelessness in El Paso County; and listened for God’s call on our lives to help house the homeless among us.
An offering was collected with all proceeds going to alleviate homelessness in Colorado Springs.
