Guest speaker, Fr. Michael Renninger from the Diocese of Richmond, VA will cover the topic: “What Does Love Look Like?” We've all heard that 'love is patient, love is kind,' but many of us struggle with the fact that WE are not always 'patient and kind!'

Sometimes our families, churches and communities are not 'patient and kind!' In an era of angry rhetoric and divisive ideas, perhaps we need to return to the kind of love which Jesus revealed in his life and teaching.

Using images and parables from the New Testament, we will explore the concrete, consoling and demanding images of love that the Lord presents to every baptized believer.

Location: Sunset Park - 2601 East Sunset Road, Las Vegas, NV 89120

Details: May is National Brain Tumor Awareness Month, and this third annual event is a growing contributor to this seriously underfunded cause. Last year the 5k doubled its number of participants and funds raised. The 2017 goal is to repeat that success, with a goal of 500 runners/walkers and $50,000, all of which goes to the national and local effort to help brain tumor victims.

Registration for the event is at, and the cost is $30 per person through April 30, and $40 thereafter. Team and corporate sponsorships are available, too.

Check-in will begin at 8 a.m., with the race/walk to follow at 9. Access to the event, staged at Site G, will be via the Sunset Park entrance along Eastern Avenue, just north of Warm Springs Road.

Cabrera Conducts Bruckner - May 27, 2017

SATURDAY, May 27, 2017 – 7:30pm

Pre-concert conversation at 6:30pm in Reynolds Hall

Donato Cabrera, conductor Liam Boisset, oboe

MOZART Overture to Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), K620

STRAUSS, R. Concerto for Oboe and Small Orchestra

BRUCKNER Symphony No. 6

THEATRICS AND DARING abound in this hearty program featuring an overture from Wolfgang Amadeus’ last opera, Richard Strauss’s only concerto for oboe and Anton Bruckner’s awe-inspiring sixth symphony. The overture to Mozart’s final opera, The Magic Flute, opens the performance with dramatic flair. Rising star, Liam Boisset will make his debut playing Richard Strauss’s autumnal, Oboe Concerto, famously inspired by conversations between the aging composer and a young U.S. soldier, an oboist, at the end of WWII. The evening concludes with Anton Bruckner’s magisterial Symphony No. 6, one of the only symphonies that remained unchanged by the composer. This glorious symphony is a poignant way to finish our 18th season - the 1899 premiere was conducted by none other than Gustav Mahler, who was in the midst of composing his Symphony No. 4 at the same time.
