Christmas program - "The Magnificat"
Benson Hotel -
Portland, OR, 97214
December 20, 2017 -
12:00 to 13:15
Rev. Brenton Minton, pastor for our President Bob DePew’s church, will be our guest speaker and will talk about the Magnificat, a canticle, also known as the Song of Mary, the Canticle of Mary, and, in the Byzantine tradition, the Ode of the Theotokos.
The text of the canticle is taken directly from the Gospel of Luke. Elizabeth praises Mary for her faith (using words partially reflected in the Hail Mary), and Mary responds with what is now known as the Magnificat.
We look forward to sharing Holiday good cheer with everyone. See you there!
