'Resurrection' at IC today

"Resurrection," a cantata by Bryan Jeffrey Leech, is the inspirational story of Simon Peter and the forgiveness of Jesus Christ. The performance leads the audience on an unforgettable spiritual journey as St. Peter, facing his own martyrdom, recalls his and the disciples' experience with Christ. In moving song, Peter shows the anguish for his denial of Christ and the joy that comes with the Resurrection and Christ's forgiveness. Secure with the love of the Resurrected Christ, Peter and the cast come to the realization that there is nothing that cannot be faced. The cantata will be today at 7:30 p.m. at Immaculate Conception Church in Newburyport. All are welcome. Admission is free, although a free-will offering will be taken up at the end of the performance.
