FALL RIVER — All are welcome to a “Hymn Fest for Our Lady” to take place at 4 p.m., Sunday, May 20, at St. Mary’s Cathedral, at the corner of Second and Spring Streets in Fall River.

Traditional Catholic hymns such as “Bring Flowers of the Rarest,” “`Tis the Month of Our Mother,” and “On This Day, O Beautiful Mother” will be played by organist Peter Krasinski as vocalist Mark Nemeskal leads the congregation in singing.

Hymnologist Peter Meggison of Westport will introduce each hymn with a brief reflection on its history and significance in Catholic devotional life.

Planners of the “Hymn Fest for Our Lady” are offering this special music event as an opportunity to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary during the month traditionally dedicated to her.

Meggison extends an invitation to all to “join us down this trip through ‘memory lane’ as we honor Mary in this special way.”

“Whether you learned these old favorites in Catholic school, at novenas or May devotions, or are just interested in music for Mary, this spiritually-filled encounter will inspire both young and old alike,” he said.

For further information, please contact Meggison at pmeggison@aol.com.
