Groome Church on Savannah Road in Lewes sponsored a benefit concert of interfaith works in the Christian and Jewish traditions performed by the nationally recognized Washington Master Chorale Chamber Singers. The April 24 event benefited Family Promise of Southern Delaware, a nonprofit group assisting homeless and low-income families. Family Promise seeks to unite faith-based and community groups in efforts to prevent homelessness through financial support and lodging, as well as support for families with children that are experiencing housing issues.
Washington Master Chorale, based in Washington, D.C., is under the direction of maestro Thomas Colohan.
The Rev. Dr. S. Willard Crossan of Groome Church and Rabbi Dr. Julie Hilton Danan of Seaside Jewish Community said the event is the first of many interfaith connections to come.
In addition, the concert was dedicated to the people of Ukraine, as they celebrated their Easter Sunday. Groome Church is collecting donations through Friday, April 29, to support Ukrainian relief efforts through the World Central Kitchen and Come Back Alive projects.
