Agapee choir image
Agapee is a Catholic Choir since 1990... A group of amateurs who found in the modern spiritual music, a way to glorify The LORD JESUS CHRIST.
>>We've been invited to perform several concerts since 1994. Today we are 100 persons, working together, trying to add a touch of perfection to all our activities. If you have a nice voice, don't hesitate to add your touch of perfection too.
 
>> At first, the Agapee choir was launched in 1979 in Our Lady of Angels, Roman Catholic Church - Badaro.The members at that time did not exceed twenty persons, but the circumstances the prevented the choir from heading forward.
 
>> In 1981, Kamal Saikaly reorganized the choir once again, performing for six years in the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Annunciation - Beirut.
>>Facing the events that happened in Lebanon, the choir had to stop all activities for three years, before restarting, and for good, in 1990 in the Church of Our Lady - Fanar, where, till now, 100 young people are celebrating Saturday mass at six o'clock P.M. with the Parish Priest Father Camil Ephrem.
 
>> Agapee's motto is composed of three basic concepts that the choir and the ties existing between its members relay on: Love, Peace, Offering.
 
>> The official uniform for the choir is formed essentially from too colors: the Yellow that symbolizes the Holly color and creation; the Navy Blue shows that all members are amateurs.
>>The Agapee holds members from all Lebanese regions, and each Christian denomination gathered in the shade of \the Church.
 
>> The Choir is divided into four groups according to the members' voices, supervised by comities and administrative body that had prepared a compulsory inner regulation to settle the relations between the members, in any way to strengthen the spirit of commitment and discipline, and to preserve the continuity of the Choir.
 
>> The main purpose which stands behind forming the Agapee choir is supporting the Catholic church, and promulgating Christian spiritual songs to extol the spirit of openness towards others in every available way. Of our major targets: using love, faith and coexistence, we defuse the Spirit of the Lord and the sense of Unity.
>>The Episcopalian comity for mass media had honored, on the occasion of the thirty second universal day of media, the Agapee choir, represented by its president Kamal SAIKALY, on the stage of the convent of Sisters of the Holy Cross - Bkinnaya. This letter of appreciation was handled in the presence of a number of political, social and spiritual personalities.
 
>> The choir is not only present at the Holy mass, on all official occasions, but it participates in gatherings and prayers. We also took part in May 1997 in celebrating the visit of the Pope John Paul II to Lebanon, by performing spiritual songs at the Basilica of Our Lady - Harissa.
 
>> Of our major activities in 1998, the participation in the beatification of Father Hardini, performing hymns and prayers in Kfifan and Beit Kassab on the second and the third of May 1998, in addition to many concerts in different areas in Lebanon. We also produced tape records containing spiritual songs recorded in our Church.
