St. Helena’s Music Ministry presents “You’ll Never Walk Alone: A Musical Offering of Hope and Healing” on Sunday, May 19, 2024 at 7:30 pm in St. Helena’s Church (602 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, DE 19809). St. Helena’s Choir will join together with the choirs of Ursuline, Padua, Salesianum, and a professional orchestra to celebrate Mary, our mother, and true beacon of light in challenging times. During this event, all are invited to come together as a larger community to receive comfort and to support those in need of comfort. Mary is our ultimate role model and we celebrate her example of faith in this moving tribute to lift us all up in difficult times.
