Each Sunday at 5:00 P.M. an open community gathers for prayer and reflection on the lines of sacred scripture and jazz.
The community is diverse and includes people who live near and far, native and new New Yorkers, and people visiting New York City. Oftentimes churches will bring groups from their home congregations. Others are not Christians or are exploring Christianity for the first time in this supportive environment. Musicians from New York and throughout the world come to play.
As at every other liturgy of Saint Peter's Church, everyone is welcome.
About the musiciansThough saxophonist Godwin Louis was born in Harlem, his spiritually-charged jazz is informed by his exploration of Haitian folklore. On each of these dates -- January 7, 14, 21, and 28 -- Godwin collaborates with musicians from Sion, Iglesia Luterana, forging a jazz / South-American folk music fusion.
*January 7 is a Jazz Mass.
