ILLUMINATE Free Online Gala and Silent Auction - St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary
You are warmly invited to a free online evening of music, poetry, and prose at St. Hildegard’s annual ILLUMINATE Gala on Friday, November 27 at 7PM.
We are not able to gather in person this year for this event, so we are inviting folks to join us for a free evening of art and contemplation, with adaptions for an online event. 
The evening will showcase performances by community members and long-standing friends of St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary. We are delighted to welcome musical guests Clare Morgan, Celtic harpist and vocalist; and Nicholas Smith, guitarist; with readings by Celeste Snowber, poet/ author/dancer; and Susan Pieters, author. We will also be graced with the piano stylings of beloved community music director, Ruben Federizon, and favourite seasonal readings will be shared.
So... get a plate of nibbles and a favourite beverage, put on your Advent blue, and join us online to ILLUMINATE!
Zoom invitations for the event will be sent via email to all who are registered.
