Angus Dei Ministry will be traveling through Dysart as part of its effort to bring the message of Christ to area communities this February 10.
The event, Lenten Lessons and Prayers: A Musical Journey with Christ, shares the story of the life of Jesus through music, narration and Scripture with an emphasis on the Passion - the events of Holy Week.
Music ministers from several local Catholic parishes will be participating in the event at the Zion Lutheran Church in Dysart on February 10 beginning at 4 p.m.
In the spirit of the message, the event is free to the public with no admission charge and is open to members of all religious faiths.
The story of Jesus is told through inspriational music woven together with narration, meaning a wide variety of musical styles can be heard. All of the music is meant to bring the listener closer to the events of 2,000 years ago and to express the magnitude of Christ's love.
The event came about, in large part, due to the work of Dave Berns, director of Angus Dei Ministry. A former Don Bosco student and native of Gilbertville, Berns was part of a group called Life Unlimited that traveled to various churches and nursing homes during his youth.
In 2009, after meeting Yugoslavian pop singer Tatiana Cameron at a concert, Berns decided to start a traveling musical group of his own, and the show was born.
Four years later, more and more people are showing up to hear the music - and the message - at shows around the Cedar Valley.
The show will begin at 4 p.m. on Sunday, February 10 at the Zion Lutheran Church in Dysart. For more information on the show, or the Angus Dei Ministry, please visit the group's website at www.waterloocatholics.org/agnusdei.htm.
