Nuns hold swinging benefit for Far East missions

Written by Ann Rodgers on .

The Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill will be swinging on Saturday.

And its all to benefit their missions in South Korea and the Republic of China.

On Saturday April 14, 2012 at 6:30 p.m., the sisters will present an evening of Swing Band Music in the Seton Hill University Performing Arts Center, 100 Harrison Ave,., Greensburg. The evening begins with hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, basket raffle and silent auction. The music will be provided by the Glass City Swing Band of Jeannette, which channels the big band sounds of Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and others, and by John Olearchick, a 2011 piano graduate of Seton Hill and a popular local performer. Tickets are $28 ($15 for students). For tickets and information call 724-836.0406 ext. 615.

The Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill serve across the United States and in five foreign nations. Their missions in the far east have thrived, and have been the source of many new vocations. Several of these schools are devoted especially to the care of handicapped and mentally disabled children, and one is for troubled and runaway girls.
