The Better Community Housing of Trenton, Inc., (BCHT) will present its first concert, “You Are the World,” Oct. 8 at 3 p.m. in Sacred Heart Church, 343 S. Broad St., Trenton. The 90-minute concert will include a diverse slate of performers, including the St. David the King Choir, Princeton Junction, TASK’S FunkTaskTiks, Sacred Heart/Holy Cross Gospel Choir, St. Gregory the Great Academy Choir, Hamilton Square, Capital Singers of Trenton Women’s Ensemble and  oloists Barbara Thompson and Rev. Crystal Hodges, all uniting through music to celebrate Father Brian McCormick, a retired priest of the Diocese, and his philosophy of creating an equitable world.

The concert will benefit two charities that provide housing and food to the needy of Trenton: BCHT, formerly Martin House, which builds, rehabs and finances houses for very low-income families to buy, and the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK), which supplies meals and wrap-around services that encourage self-sufficiency and improve quality of life in Trenton and beyond.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $25 for a family of two to five and $10 for additional children under age 18 and seniors and may be purchased at the BCHT office at 802 E. State St., Trenton, or through Eventbrite. Please bring a non-perishable food item for the Sacred Heart Food Pantry.

Police-guarded free parking is available on street and in the CURE Arena lot one block south of the church. The church is handicap accessible in the rear. Father McCormick’s new book, “You Are the World,” will be released at the concert (donation $20) and on Amazon.com.
