The Mystic River Chorale will present the Beatitude Mass: For the Homeless on Sunday, January 20, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. at Harkness Chapel at Connecticut College in New London. This piece, by composer Henry Mollicone, weaves the Beatitudes, the text of the Mass ordinary, and words that tell the story of homeless men and women. They will also be collecting donations for those experiencing homelessness. Ronald Steed, Deputy Director of Housing Programs at NLHHC, will be speaking about challenges facing those who are housing insecure or homeless in New London County and the New London Homeless Hospitality Center's work.
