Resurrection of Our Lord — Easter Day (Year C)

You probably do not need to be reminded that Easter Sunday is arriving; nor do you need to be reminded that the music of Easter is full to the brim with Joy. But I will remind you that the upcoming Sing For Joy program, heard on this station, will overflow with that Easter joy. Join us for a musical celebration of Easter.
