There will be no admission charge, but a free will offering will be taken up to support Love Repeated.

Love Repeated is a not-for-profit co-founded in 2012 by Father Simon Taabu from the Diocese Rulenge-Ngara in Tanzania who formerly served at Holy Family, and Nancy Davis, who works for the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis in Springfield, and is a Holy Family parishioner and chorale member.

Love Repeated continues to grow, and serves the hungry and homeless — particulary the orphaned — providing food, clothing, shelter, education and medical assistance in the Rulenge-Ngara Diocese.

“Father Taabu served for 10 years in the diocese of Peoria and I am proud to continue his legacy of loving our neighbors,” said Davis.

The students of Carroll Catholic School in Lincoln partnered with St. Thomas School in Tanzania to raise funds to bring electricity and new concrete flooring to the school. These St. Thomas students showed up in their uniforms to greet Love Repeated visitors even though it was not a school day. Supplied Photo

Regarding the music attendees can expect, co-director MaryAnn Fahey-Darling states, “The chorale is performing an eclectic selection of music . . . wonderful classical pieces interspersed with traditional Americana and rocking gospel. Toe tapping Irish tunes and ballads are sprinkled in just to add to the fun!”


Special guest artist, Father Charles Klamut, pastor of St. Anthony Parish in Bartonville, will perform his new composition of Psalm 130, arranged by Mark Filip, directed by Mary Jo Papich, with Tony Roberts on keyboard and Peggy Bonner on percussion.
