Saint Mary's College invites public to concert

Carol Williams, who has been called "America's Sweetheart Concert Organist," will offer a free concert Sept. 16 at Saint Mary's College of California.

"I want to bring the organ to new audiences and, with my performances, make people feel good," Williams said. She gives a new spin to the classical organ concert, engaging audiences with her charismatic humor, interesting stories and remarkable musical performances.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 16 in the college chapel, 1928 Saint Mary's Road, Moraga. For additional information, contact Brother Martin Yribarren, FSC, at myribarr@stmarys-ca.edu.

Fremont parish to host a Bible reading relay

Holy Spirit Parish in Fremont will stage an event of biblical proportions — one that may leave some participants speechless — that will honor the Word of God. The parish will host a Bible reading relay on Sept. 29.

The Bible reading marathon is a way that the parish will mark the Year of Faith.

Participants will read aloud from the same Bible, the New American Bible, and each person will read a part of the Bible for 30 minutes, in continual fashion. The reading marathon is expected to take about four days and involve 48 readers each day.

Rev. Mathew Vellankal, Holy Spirit pastor, said that they will need about 200 readers.

If you would like to be part of this Bible adventure team and be blessed by God, go to the link to sign up: www.signupgenius.com/go/9040F4DA9AE22A31-bible or www.holyspiritfremont.org.
