First Sunday in Lent (Year C)

The time of Lent in the church year is a time without decorations or greeting cards, but it is not lacking in wonderful music. If Sing For Joy, a program heard on this station, has not been part of your weekly routine, we invite you to change that, make it part of your Lenten season this year. You’ll be glad you did.
