Music Festival Service

Sunday, October 20, at 11:00 a.m.

This Sunday’s  Music Festival Service will honor two of St. John’s former music directors.

The Rev. William Bradley Roberts (left), who served as music director from 2002-2008, will return to lead the combined choirs and congregation in several of his own compositions-many of them composed during his time at St. John’s. Our most recent music director, Michael Lodico (right), will be the organist for the service.

A reception in honor of Michael’s ministry will take place in the Togo West Parlor following the service.
