It’s that time again for the annual Christmas Concert at Transfiguration Catholic Church, 2515 W. Martin Luther King Blvd., in Los Angeles.  The musical event takes place on Sunday, Dec. 16, at 7 p.m. The theme is “God’s Gift of Grace: the Baby Jesus.”

“Our theme was taken from the exceptionally, beautiful gospel song, ‘I Know Something About God’s Grace.’ Our program will emphasize the urgent need of God’s grace through His love for mankind despite the troubles and unrest that the world is presently experiencing,” said Oscar Pratt, choir conductor.

“With all of the devastating difficulties, we sorely need God’s grace to help us. Our choir members will hopefully help to stimulate our Christian faith through their performance.”


In addition to renditions of familiar Christmas carols, there will be a presentation by Father Oscar Pratt II of Katherine Drexel Catholic Church in Boston, Mass. Drexel was a nun who was instrumental in establishing Xavier University, an African American institution in New Orleans.

Transfiguration concerts have a long tradition of success, said Deacon Mark Anthony Rice, church administrator. “We are so grateful to our parishioners and the community for supporting this wonderful fundraising program for so many years. This year’s concert promises to result in another evening to remember.”

Following the performance, refreshment will be served in the Parish Hall. For more information, call the church office at (323) 291-1136.
