The George A Black Liturgical Fellowship
A liturgical fellowship has been established in the name of George Black, a member of the parish and a professor of French literature, a liturgist, hymnist, church musician and composer.
George believed that music is an integral part of liturgy, that the choir’s role is to lead, and that the congregation’s work is to sing with purpose. He led by example. He mentored clergy, lay leaders and musicians his entire life as the consummate teacher.
Following his death in 2003, this fellowship was established with the following aims:
