St. Paul’s, Haymarket to hold Charity Concert for Haymarket Regional Food Pantry
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Haymarket will present a concert on Sunday February 9, 2020 at 3:00 PM at St. Paul’s Church. All proceeds from the concert will go to the Haymarket Regional Food Pantry.
The Reverend Sean Rousseau, rector of St. Paul’s, stated, “St. Paul’s has a strong and continuing bond with the Food Pantry and this concert is an opportunity to enhance and broaden that bond awhile providing a new level of assistance to the Food Pantry and its clients”.
The performers at the concert will be members of St. Paul’s Parish, including many of the members of the church choir. “We are blessed to have many talented singers and musicians within our parish and we felt it would be natural for us to utilize their talents for the benefit of the Food Pantry”.
This concert will be the first in memory at the historic church built in 1801.
St. Paul’s is the oldest church in continuous use in Prince William County, and served as a military hospital for both Union and Confederate soldiers during the Civil War.
