This Friday, February 10
th Immaculate Heart of Mary church presents the Fourth Annual #young@heart at 7:30 PM. Five of our parishioners are performing: Phillip Milbouer will play the harp, Jesse Broome is playing flute, Connor Whelan is playing piano and Scott and Donna Tran are playing violins! John Battagliese and last year’s Nate Irvin are singing, and Nathalie Wang is playing the organ. And again we’re featuring young@art! Students from the Churchill School and Center will have works of visual art on display!

The evening provides high school or college students studying music and art as well as accomplished young adults beginning their professional careers something that can be difficult to come by in New York City: opportunities to display their talent as they choose.

In Pope Francis' book The Church of Mercy, he says “Let us think about the image of a symphony, which implies accord, harmony… This is a beautiful image illustrating that the Church is like a great orchestra in which there is great variety. And this is the beauty of the Church: everyone brings their own gifts which God has given, for the sake of enriching others.”

Allow the creativity of these talented young people to enrich you. But do more than just think about whether you’re able to attend. Use your own gift of communication, and participate in “the evangelical mission of the Church” by helping spread the word! Invite a neighbor, even if you can’t come. Tell at least one person who doesn’t attend Mass here. Spread the news and the joy of music and art...
