Public Invited to Evensong at St. Luke’s in Monrovia
St. Luke the Physician Episcopal Church in Monrovia will present its annual Evensong in Epiphany on Sunday, Jan. 20 at 4 p.m. The church is located at 122 S. California Ave. at Foothill Boulevard in Monrovia.
The public performance will be officiated by Canon Judith Heffron, with mezzo-soprano Trisha Rivera as cantor. Music will include the Denis Mason “Preces and Responses,” the “Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis” by Ralph Vaughan Williams, and the Peter Cornelius anthem “The Three Kings,” with baritone soloist David Hobbs. The music for the introit, “Christ, Mighty Savior,” was composed by David Charles Walker, a former interim rector at St. Luke’s, who died on Dec. 3 of last year.
A freewill offering will be taken, and a wine and cheese reception in Guild Hall will follow the program.
