Human Rights Sunday

Human Rights Sunday

Sunday, December 5 at 10:00 am or 11:15 am at All Souls or Online

Human Rights Sunday invites us to bear witness to experiences that must never be forgotten, including the inhuman suffering perpetrated by human wickedness. Embraced by the beauty of music, poetry, and other forms of art, we find courage to bear witness to even the most devastating forms of oppression and injustice. The faceplate of poet Carolyn Forché’s book Against Forgetting: Twentieth-Century Poetry of Witness contains a three-line poem by Bertolt Brecht, who writes:

In the dark times, will there also be singing?

Yes, there will be singing.

About the dark times.

Join us on Sunday, December 5, at 10 AM or 11:15 AM for the stunningly powerful choral masterpiece Cantos Sacrados composed by James MacMillan and sung by the incomparable All Souls Choir, poetry by Carolyn Forché, and a homily by Galen Guengerich.
