Non-denominational Concert

The concert will be hosted by Connor Boyle and Elizabeth Andrews as well as volunteers from youth groups around the community such as The Ridge, St. Peter’s, St. Bartholomew, and CCC.
All of our collected proceeds will benefit Horizon House homeless shelter.
Unity Night of Praise will take place January 31 in the Erne Auditorium at North from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Connor was in love with the idea of developing an event that brought the Christian community of Columbus together. He and I are both Catholic. With that come many stereotypes, whether true or not, that tend to set us apart from many other Christian denominations. However, there is one undeniable similarity among Christians of different denominations. Our music is all derived from one idea: the love of God. We hope to create a sense of “unity” by performing popular Christian songs with a music group that is made up of high school students from many different denominations.
The concert will feature one song arranged and sung by East High School’s Acalympians and we hope for accompaniment by the Banister Family Bluegrass Band.
