bach-hau[1]The Family name of Johann Sebastian Bach translates from German to mean “Brook.” Beethoven said of Johann Sebastian Bach, not a brook but an ocean!

Take a moment to begin your Holy Week pilgrimage and remember the birthday of this great master on Monday 21 March at 7:00 p.m. when a special program of his works will be played on the Bicentennial Organ in Grace Church. The 21st is the traditional date of Bach’s birth by the old style or Julian calendar.

The program is free and open to all. It will last approximately an hour.

Help feed the needy of our city by bringing a dry good to place in the food donation basket as you enter the church.
