A Rite of Wintertide

Hudson County’s Cantigas Women’s Choir presents its 20th annual winter concert titled Rite of Wintertide, on Saturday, December 11, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church (440 Hoboken Avenue, Jersey City).

Led by Director Hannah Carr and Assistant Director Erasmia Voukelatos, Rite of Wintertide is a chronology of selected religious and devotional festivals that take place around the world during the month of December. The concert celebrates the many ways in which people across the globe walk their spiritual path, and their common messages of light, peace and, above all, love.

Rite of Wintertide is dedicated to the memory of Cantigas’ beloved long-time member Lynnie Connell, whose life of spiritual devotion and service to others was a perfect example of unconditional love.
