Emmanuel Cathedral, Durban, school choir

Sing with One Voice for the Dennis Hurley Centre

Seven Durban Catholic schools are uniting to show their support for the Dennis Hurley Centre with an evening of choral music at the Emmanuel Cathedral this Thursday, 25 August. The participating schools are: St Benedicts Pinetown, St Francis Mariannhill, Holy Family Glenwood, St Henry’s Marist, Our Lady of Fatima Durban North, Maris Stella and Kwa Thintwa School for the Deaf (which was founded by Archbishop Hurley).

In 2012, a group of Grade 11 girls from Maris Stella visited the projects at the Cathedral, and were so impressed by the work with refugees, homeless and unemployed people, as well as those with HIV/Aids, that they deiced to do something to help. They approached other Catholic schools in the greater Durban area to join them in a concert of sacred music.

Entrance is free and all are welcome. A collection will be taken on the night for the Dennis Hurley Centre.
