The Monastery of Immaculate Conception in Ferdinand echoed with vibrant choir voices and instruments Sunday evening with a community event hosted by the Sisters of St. Benedict.


In celebration of their 150th Anniversary the Sisters of St. Benedict hosted an Area Choir Concert as they invited local churches, schools, and music organizations. The music consisted of Christmas music as well as traditional choir songs guided by music instructors.

One of the music teachers taking part was Kim Wirthwein from a local school who says the experience the youth had was beneficial.

This was the first area concert for the church and Catherine Duenne (pronounced: Denny) Director of Music Ministry, who shares the significance of music that brings the community together.20161204_150516
