Saint Teresa of Calcutta’s Light for Our Times @ SunUp Brewery
Sep 22 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Saint Teresa of Calcutta's Light for Our Times @ SunUp Brewery | Phoenix | Arizona | United States

This month’s Happy Hour conversation will be led by Scottsdale’s Notre Dame Prep Theology Teacher Stephen M. Matuszak, S.T.D., who discusses the lesser-known side of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

St. Teresa of Calcutta is sometimes referred to as a Saint of darkness. She was not afraid to enter into dark places for forsaken faces as she encountered Christ in the distressing disguise of the poor. Plunged into “the night of the spirit” for much of her adult life, her single-mindedness radiated mercy and love. Her radical renunciation and fidelity enabled her Spouse to shine with an abundance of corporal and spiritual words of mercy. Her letters give us a glimpse of her desolate journey and purposeful struggle toward transforming union, the mystery of God’s work in a soul that cleaved unrelentingly to Him.

Join us for Happy Hour at the Sun-up Brewing Company, 5:30-7:30. Leila’s talk will cover how American society and even parents are training boys and men out of manhood and turning girls and women against their own nature. You’ll learn how the feminist and LGBT movements—which are not synonymous—contradict both each other and reality, and what you can do bring the Light of Christ to the culture and bring male and female back.

Fifth Annual Sacred Music Concert: Sounds of the Cathedrals @ Chapel of our Lady Xavier College Preparatory | Phoenix | Arizona | United States

Sounds of the Cathedrals

Solis Camerata (Choir of the Sun)

Dr. Kira Zeeman Rugen, Artistic Director

Presented by Catholic Phoenix

Join Catholic Phoenix as it presents its Fifth Annual Sacred Music concert, featuring Solis Camerata.

Take a musical tour around the great European cathedrals, whose structures stood central to the creative genius of renowned medieval and Renaissance composers.

Begin with a perilous journey by ship to England, where William Byrd labored at the Chapel Royal and Canterbury Cathedral for Queen Elizabeth, yet secretly composed music aligning with his deep convictions as a Roman Catholic.

Voyage across the channel to Notre Dame Cathedral, where medieval composers planted the seeds for polyphonic chant and the development of modern musical notation. Additionally, encounter Notre Dame’s Mauchaut, who composed the first polyphonic mass conceived as a single work.

Travel on a Venetian gondola to St. Marks Cathedral to hear music by Gabrieli, whose works were the first to exhibit dynamic marks and divided choirs. Then journey southward to Rome for Allegri’s haunting Miserere Dei, whose composition became so favored at the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel that it could only be performed at certain services, with transcription of the score punishable by death. Then discover how Palestrina’s work at the Sistine Chapel saved polyphony from extinction by proving to the Council of Trent that the words of the mass could be understood clearly when sung.

Join us for these compositions, destinations, and more, as you experience a remarkable aural journey through the Sounds of the Cathedrals.
