Cathedral of the Incarnation Presents the Notre Dame Glee Club for an Evening of Music

Sunday, October 17, 6pm at the Cathedral

The Cathedral of the Incarnation is pleased to welcome the University of Notre Dame Men’s Glee Club, on Sunday, October 17th at 6pm as part of their 2021 Fall Tour. The concert is free though a donation of $15 is suggested. The glee club, under the direction of Daniel Stowe, recently celebrated its 100th anniversary as a campus ensemble. The program will include sacred music by Victoria, Mendelssohn, and Rachmaninoff; contemporary classical choral settings; and a presentation of the civil-rights suite “Rainbow Round My Shoulder,” originally compiled to accompany the landmark 1959 Alvin Ailey dance work of the same name. Also on the program will be American folk songs, hymns, spirituals, and popular songs. Don’t miss this thrilling evening of a cappella music for men's chorus.

Click HERE to register online.

About The Notre Dame Glee Club

Founded in 1915, the Notre Dame Glee Club celebrated its Centennial in the 2015-16 school year, welcoming over 500 alumni back to campus for a reunion. Each year the 60-voice chorus presents a wide-ranging repertory in several formal campus and tour concerts as well as in dozens of informal performances at University events. The Club’s membership is drawn from all courses of study at the university; their concert programs customarily include classical a cappella music for men’s chorus as well as folk songs, African-American spirituals, barbershop arrangements, and songs of Notre Dame.

The Club tours domestically twice each year, and internationally once every other year; over the last quarter-century they have performed in over 40 U.S. states and in 20 countries in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

Among several Glee Club recordings are Beautiful Rain (2007), On the Rocky Road to Dublin (2012), and Loyal Sons (2016). Their most recent collection is Christmas at Notre Dame (2017), with the Notre Dame Symphony Orchestra.

Director Daniel Stowe (dstowe@nd.edu) has been a member of the University of Notre Dame faculty since 1993. In addition to directing the Glee Club, he is also conductor of the Notre Dame Symphony Orchestra and the Notre Dame Collegium Musicum, and teaches music history and conducting.

Cathedral for Pets: St. Francis Day Pet Food Drive to Support Last Hope

Sunday, October 3, 2021

On Sunday, October 3, we will be collecting non-perishable, unopened dog and cat food to benefit Last Hope Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation. Last Hope works throughout Long Island to rescue dogs and cats and place them in responsible, loving homes; reduce animal overpopulation through spay and neuter programs; offer low-cost vaccination programs; and help pet owners in financial hardship meet their pets' veterinary needs.

Cans and bags of dog and cat food can be brought to the cathedral at the 4pm Blessing of the Animals or any of the other Sunday services on October 3. Your gifts will help feed the animals in Last Hope’s shelter as well as other cats and dogs in need. If you have food you’d like to donate but cannot bring it on October 3, contact Rebecca Maines or Kyle Sabo via Realm to make alternative arrangements.

“First Serve” Opportunity

As we return to church this fall, we would like to share a unique opportunity for all cathedral members to explore service as an acolyte, usher, or lector. Collectively, people who serve in these roles are known as our “liturgical ministers” because each person plays an important part in each of our Sunday liturgies at 8:00am, 9:15am, and 11:15am.

Ushers play an important part in greeting worshippers and organizing the offertory and communion, lectors proclaim the Word of God and lead the prayers of the people, and our acolytes bear processional torches and crosses and assist the clergy in setting the Table.

We would like to invite you to try out service in one or all of these ministries on a one-time basis with “no strings attached.” You can give any one of these ministries a test drive and see if it is really where God is calling you to serve. If it is, great - you will be able to formally join the ministry at the next training session and begin your service. If it’s not for you, there is no long term obligation and you’d be free to explore some other ways to serve.

We will begin scheduling “First Serve” volunteer slots in October, so please email Chris Scott at or Kyle Sabo at for more information.

God of healing and hope, in Jesus you meet us in our places of pain and fear. Look with mercy on those who have contracted the new virus, on any who are vulnerable, and on all who feel in danger.

Make us more aware of our interdependence on each other, and of the strength that comes from being one body in you. Through Christ, our wounded healer. Amen.
