St. Mary’s Heavenly Fire Steel Band is a unique mix of music, religion and culture – representing our diverse congregation and neighborhood. Heavenly Fire Steel Band was formed in 1995 and quickly became a well known and sought after steel band ensemble. At its peak, the group featured 22 youth from the church performing not only at our church, but around New England for various parishes, community events and festivals. Notable performances including the Boston Common Tree Lighting, First Night Boston, the New England Steel Band Festival and Boston’s annual steel band competition (panorama).
After a period of inactivity, Heavenly Fire has been revived and features a young, vibrant and talented roster of youth ready to entertain and enlighten. We played at the consecration of Bishop Alan Gates and are performing in churches throughout our diocese, most recently at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Hanover. Our directors Kalea and Shaquan are ushering in an exciting new era for the band.
Come Join Us!
Heavenly Fire is always looking for new members to join our music ministry! While we are a youth group, we also invite adults to join us. We rehearse every Sunday (following our Holy Eucharist service and brunch) from 1pm until 3pm. The only requirement we have at Heavenly Fire is that members participate in performances and attend rehearsals. For more information please contact Reverend Edwin at firstname.lastname@example.org
