           A Morning for Women             with Ana Hernandez 

Featuring Group Singing, Chant and Deep Listening Hosted by the Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross and Wellspring


Saturday, Feb. 17

9:30 am to noon


Women of all ages are invited to celebrate diversity and strengthen cultural competence in this morning of group singing, chant and deep listening with singer and song-writer Ana Hernandez. The concert is part of an open Philadelphia chapter meeting of the Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross (SCHC).

 About Ana Hernandez     Ana is a composer/arranger, workshop facilitator, author, and self-proclaimed mischief maker.  She works with people to create beautiful liturgies in many different styles, from early music to contemplative, to drummy and participatory. She facilitates deep and meaningful conversations using the Art of Hosting modalities. 

"Music is what keeps me fairly grounded in a world that isn’t. It’s not important that you listen to my stuff, except insofar as it helps you to find your way to your own, and moves you toward being the compassionate, peaceful human you were created to be.

Life is beautiful, but shorter than you think. Show love now."

The Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross         The Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross (SCHC) is a diverse group of more than 800 women, both laywomen and clergy, single and partnered. Founded in 1884 by Emily Malbone Morgan in the United States, the Society welcomes women from any church with whom the Episcopal Church is in communion: the Anglican Communion, the Moravian Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ECLA).

Companions are called to live under a rule of intercessory prayer, thanksgiving, and simplicity of life, seeking to live a life of obedience to Christ in the company of others. Connected to one another by the Companion Prayer Chain and the Intercession Paper sent to all Companions monthly, we focus our prayers on the needs of individuals and families known to Companions around the world as well as on our concerns for the unity of all God’s people, God’s mission in the world, social justice, and peace and reconciliation.
