Holy Name of Jesus Gospel Choir to celebrate 20th anniversary with music, fellowship


Members of the Holy Name of Jesus Gospel Choir rehearse, along with some of their brethren from the Providence parish’s two other choirs — the African Community Choir and the St. Ambrose Schola Cantorum — in preparation for a concert they will offer in celebration of their 20th anniversary as a singing group on Sunday, Sept. 9 at 3 p.m., at Holy Name of Jesus Church, 99 Camp St., Providence. The group, and the other two parish choirs, will be joined by choirs from three other local churches: Beneficent Congregational Church, Bethel A.M.E and Olney Street Baptist Church. The Holy Name of Jesus Gospel Choir remains the only one of its kind in Rhode Island, and one of the few in New England.
