THE CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH OF PATCHOGUE PRESENTS
JOSEPH W. WOO, M.D. in Recital
The pipe organ is a musical instrument that is so powerful it can create a rumble in your chest and blow your hair back at the same time. Come experience awesome and beautiful music as our resident organist, Joseph W. Woo, performs works by Bach, Mendelssohn, Vierne and others on our 1915 Midmer, 2000-pipe, three-manual pipe organ that is a dominant presence in our National Registry of Historic Places church. Admission is free, although your contributions will benefit the organ fund.
Joseph W. Woo has been studying the piano since age 3 and organ since age 10. He has studied organ performance with several notable organists, including Walter Hilse. Joseph graduated Magna Cum Laude from SUNY Stony Brook. Having recently been awarded his MD from Stony Brook School of Medicine, he is currently in his first year of medical residency.

As the minister, I am part of a long arc of those called and installed to serve God through the church. As the congregation of this church ~ you too have been called to serve within the same framework. I pray that as pastor and congregation, we gratefully accept the trust and responsibility placed in us by God to be the church of Jesus Christ, and that we may advance the mission and ministry of this church as we continue to grow in faith and in covenant with each other.
I pray that this year we will be more than busy and entertaining. Everything we do in the name of church should bring us closer to God, to ourselves, and to each other.
Blessings and Health,
