This Tuesday, March 10, 2020, at 6:45pm meet the celebrated builder of our magnificent Manton Memorial Organ. Monsieur Quoirin is here with his team are doing a “9-year tune up” of the organ. Come hear him and his team discuss the current work being done on the organ and answer any general questions you may have. Monsieur Quoirin is the most revered organ builder in France in this period of history. In just a few weeks his team will begin to remove the organ from Notre Dame Cathedral, piece by piece, following the devastating fire last year. He has been charged with the rebuilding that, the most famous organ in France. This will be a brief, informal and fascinating opportunity to learn more about our glorious instrument!
This week: The rector shares a poem reflecting on part of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount as relayed in Matthew: “You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot. You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.”
