Communique: St. Paul's Episcopal Church "Coastal Carolina Christmas"

St. Paul's Episcopal Church presents its 4th Annual Coastal Carolina Christmas this Friday evening, December 2 at 7:00pm. The church choir performs selections from Handel's Messiah accompanied by an orchestra, while the Wilmington Boys Choir performs traditional carols. Following the concert, champagne and a collection of chocolate treats will be served in St. Paul's Parish Hall-the Sparkling Chocolate Reception.

Soloists for Handel's "Messiah" selections: Nancy King, Isabella Stollenmaier, Robert Workmon, John Callison, Carl Samet

Merry Ann Wright, Chairman of the Board of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, and David Tousignant, a tenor from the choir, joined us to talk about the event-and most importantly what St. Paul's will do with the money this event raises. Three organizations that are part of St. Paul's outreach ministries will receive the proceeds from this event: Mother Hubbard's Cupboard (hunger relief); Help Hub (crisis assistance); and Wilmington Boys Choir (vocal training for youth). Last year, the event raised $10,000 for these organizations-the organizers hope to exceed that amount this year.
