During the service, prayers will be said, songs will be sung, music will be played, and special guest Lee Mixashwan Rozie will offer a reflection on the day. Of Maheekanew, Mohawk and Cherokee descent and coming from Pequonock, the intertribal community of regional Natives located in present-day Windsor, CT, Mr. Rozie uses his extensive experience as musician, educator and Indigenous artist to illustrate the link between Native American and modern music/culture. The service will feature choirs of local communities and will be directed by Saint Ann’s Organist and Choir Director, Hector Migliacci.
This is a free event and open to all. Participants are encouraged to bring a canned good which will be donated to the Shoreline Soup Kitchens and Pantries.
