A delightful program of Christmas music! Fresh adaptations of familiar Christmas songs along with some that are seldom heard. Children 7 and up will appreciate their joyful music.
May the Lord give you peace,
Thank you for your past support of Chiesa Nuova through your prayer, donations and attendance at our events. We come to you again, asking you to brighten our world and to help further the mission of Chiesa Nuova: to witness God’s beauty and love through the performing arts by inviting artists and the community to mutually experience the fine arts in a Franciscan atmosphere of hospitality, openness and peace.
We have never been a large arts organization; we walk in the footsteps of Francis of Assisi, a poet, a musician, an artist. Completely dependent on God and the kindness of others, we need your continued support. An hour of Debussy or a creative drama can transform and enrich lives. Each person who enters our events is welcomed with the hospitality of Christ and peace of Francis. Poor, rich, lost, retired, children, adults….Chiesa Nuova sets no boundaries, nor will we ever. Artists of all kinds often express how much they love performing with us because they are so free to express the gifts and beauty God has given them. Your contribution will help Chiesa Nuova reach beyond what we’ve done since 1995 with over 500 artists in Chicago, the Midwest and overseas. You will help us meet expenses and also expand into the future. You will feed the spiritually hungry, offer light to those blinded by violence or hatred. You will encourage artists and enable our Franciscan spirit of respect for all life and the joy of God to enter more and more hearts. You give witness that the Church is a patroness of the arts and help us permeate the visible world with the presence of our God whom St. Bonaventure called Beauty Itself.
Please offer what you can and I promise that all of us will remember you in prayers of gratitude. Thank you for all you do to support the mission of Chiesa Nuova, a New Church.
May God bless you always,
The Board of Directors of Chiesa Nuova
