St. John the Baptist Choir treats parish to Christmas Songs - 12/21/13

On Saturday, December 21, 2013, the faithful of St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church, Edwardsville enjoyed a Christmas Concert by the Choir. The faithful were treated to Nativity standards in English and Slavonic by the choir, led by Director Matthew Hoidra. The temple was darkened, lit only by the candles and the Christmas tree, which lent a very solemn atmosphere to the gathering. This was the first time the choir presented a concert for the parish in this manner, and based on the outcome, there will be many more to come.
