On Wednesday 12 April at 7pm, St Joseph’s hosts this hauntingly beautiful piece in seven movements which evokes the seven last sentences of Christ on the cross.

Adapted for string quartet by Joseph Haydn in 1787, the piece was originally commissioned for a Good Friday Service in Cadiz, Spain.   

Tickets cost £10;  Under 18s: £5.  All extra money raised will go to our Lenten Charities.

Please contact the Parish Office to book.  This concert is an opportunity not to be missed!
