The prophet Isaiah teaches that God finds delight in the worship performed by kind-hearted people who let justice flow on the land. If God’s beloved poor are uprooted from inhumane and unjust conditions, songs of praise become harmonious melodies pleasing to God’s ears (see Is 1:11-20).

On October 22, 2011, the Essentials Choir of the St. Hannibal Empowerment Center (SHEC) invites you to a night of singing, a moment of praising God, an occasion of building homes and an avenue of helping typhoon victims.
