Christ The King In Old Lyme Celebrates July 4th With Rock N Roll Mass Today
July 4, 2021 by Admin
OLD LYME Looking for a different way to commemorate July 4th this year how about a trip to church?
Christ the King Church in Old Lyme, a Roman Catholic faith community, is observing The Fourth of July 2021 with a Mass that celebrates the principles of religious freedom on which America was founded, honors those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the protection of that freedom, and praises God.
Every once in a while, July 4 falls on a Sunday, as it does this year the last time was in 2010. Christ the King Church has had a tradition of observing Independence Day with a rousing liturgy that features upbeat, uplifting music with the purpose of both praising God and celebrating the countrys birth.
This year the 10:30 a.m. mass will feature rock n roll music provided by electric guitar and bass, drums, and trumpets, as well as piano, organ, and keyboard. It will be a rousing and joyful celebration.
All are welcome to attend Mass at Christ the King Church. The church is located at 1 McCurdy Road in Old Lyme, at the foot of Lyme Street in the historic district . Face masks are optional for vaccinated persons.
