Belize Mission Coffeehouse March 23

Saturday, March 23 —7 p.m.

Our Belize Mission Coffeehouse is an annual event that supports our Belize Mission Team. Come and enjoy a talented group of parishioners and others, snack on Belizian food, and support this important annual mission to Holy Cross Anglican School.

Featured performers include singer/songwriter Jamie Pahl, rector of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Oxford; and the St. Matthew AME Church Choir, Directed by Mr. David Davis.

If you or a group/ensemble would like a chance to perform—from classical to jazz, from folk to pop, from dance to dramatic reading, or even comedy–please contact John McHenry . We’d like to make this year’s Belize Mission Coffee House–coming up next month in the Parish Hall–feature as much “home brewed” talent as ever!
