Our Lady of the Presentation Parish PAC (Presentation Art Center) 8860 Tudor, Overland 63114 Please join us for drum circle each Tuesday during Lent 7pm - 8pm in the parish hall. Starting 3/12/19.  Drum circles originated among ancient peoples, including Native Americans, as a way of bringing the community together through a common rhythmic beat.  An international array of native hand drums are used for drum circles. Frequently used are hand drums from Africa, South America, Ireland, and Scotland. For example, African djembe drums are common in drum circles. Djembe in various sizes are sold at Guitar Center on the Rock Rd  in Bridgeton. If you have a hand drum, please bring it! If you do not have a drum please contact Sister Brenda.  No previous music knowledge or drum experience necessary! Group drumming is not about the quality of the playing; it is about the experience of the Holy Spirit moving in us and among us.  Everyone experiences drumming differently. Participants in our Thursday afternoon drum circle have found the experience to be centering, energizing, prayerful, calming, and unifying.  Please contact Sister Brenda to reserve a spot. by 2/28/19 to sign up for voice lessons brenda.fritz@doc.org 217-343-2250
