This concert series is a part of Concordia Lutheran Ministries’ 140th Anniversary Celebration! Concordia was founded as an orphanage and home for the aged in 1881 by a group of Lutheran pastors in Cabot, PA. Today, we are one of the largest nonprofit senior care providers in the country – serving around 50,000 people per year in three states. As we celebrate those humble beginnings this year, we honor the legacy of those who came before us and thank God for his abundant blessings.
