Some of the most sacred music in the Christian Faith is being presented during the lunch hour each Friday this summer at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church in Chillicothe.

Delma Rouleau, the music director at Saint Mary’s and accomplished organist and pianist, is giving hour long music programs between 11:30am-12:30pm every Friday through July 30th.   

The program is free and open to the public.

Delma planned the music program for these times in so the community could stop in on their lunch hour.  An example of her sacred music selection included playing pieces from English Composers, G.F., Handel and Henry Purcell, on June 18th.

Here is the schedule going forward:
June 25: Mendelssohn and Schubert
July 2: American Hymnody
July 9: Gregorian Chant and Renaissance Gems
July 16: French Organ Works
July 23: Christmas Carols in July
July 30: Mozart and Bach

Delma Rouleau’s playing during the Friday program has been described as- “Breathtaking, and in the sanctuary of the beautiful church with such great acoustics it is even more spectacular.”
