Cantata highlight of Federated service

Published: Friday, March 22, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

The Sycamore and DeKalb community is invited to attend a traditional Maundy Thursday Communion service at The Federated Church in Sycamore at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Featured will be the cantata, “Song of The Shadows,” by Joseph M. Martin, performed by the chancel choir. The cantata sets the tone for the Holy Week events from Jesus’ Palm Sunday procession through the crucifixion. As the mood gets darker, so does the sanctuary as eight candles are extinguished one by one.

The Federated Church is an open and affirming congregation and welcomes any and all who wish to worship with them. The church is located at the corner of Route 64 and Greeley Street, just west of the downtown area in Sycamore. Parking is available behind the building.
