Be moved by the Spirit!

Dear friends of Omega,

As our founder, Carla De Sola, says, "the Spirit moves!" We agree!

On May 15, we invite you to come and be moved by the spirit as Omega celebrates the feast of Pentecost in our final performances of the year at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola.

We hope to see you there!

With blessings,
Becky, Katie, Martha, and Margaret

Upcoming Performances

Pentecost at St. Ignatius Loyola
Sunday, 5/15

11am Wallace Hall Family Mass
(in hall beneath the church)
7:30pm Contemporary Mass
(in main church)

Omega will present several pieces at two Pentecost masses, including a remounting of Carla De Sola's "Veni Sancte Spiritus," and a new psalm response offering worshippers the opportunity to join us in our movement prayer. Various choreography will be augmented by our trademark "fire sleeves," and since this is the one day of the year we get to wear them, watch out--we plan to take St. Ignatius's words to heart and "set the world on fire" with our dancing!

St. Ignatius Loyola is located on Mahattan's Upper East Side at 84th St. and Park Ave. Map
