THE BATTLE OF BOAT is a new English musical which debuted last year in London's West End and centers around a group of children struggling to find their place in a world at war.

The Friday Mission Lunch program, is celebrating over 25th years of providing “the best, seated hot meals” in Paris for 64 guests in need of a meal and community. Take-out meals are provided to those who could not get, or do not want a seat at the table. We serve approximately 70 people per week.
To keep these meals going for many more years to come, we need your help yet again this year.
For Lent, instead of giving up your favorite food,
give away a food or kitchen item to the Friday Mission Lunch program.
Tuesday, March 26 at 7pm. Join us at the American University of Paris for an evening with Paris Choral Society and American Composer Richard Burchard in anticipation of the World Premiere of the Stabat Mater. This 45-minute piece, to be performed by PCS on March 29th and 30th, was written specifically for Paris Choral and the American Cathedral Choirs.
In a "Larry King"-esque interview, Mr. Burchard will enlighten attendees to the intricacies and inspiration behind his choral works. The evening will be moderated by Cathedral parishioner and lifelong journalist, Joe Coyle. This is a unique opportunity to meet the composer and see some behind-the-scenes magic making such a work to come together.
