It’s almost the weekend — time for a post that’s just fun! A reader writes:
What happens when six Dominican Novices go to the garage of St. Gertrude Priory in Cincinnati, OH? Jazz music!
Notice the statue of St. Dominic keeps vigil as the friars play (it is being restored by one of the novices).
Watch for yourself….
There are many young dominicans who are also incredibly talented musicians. I’ve had the privilege of hearing some of their informal jam sessions take place after they host mini-retreats with young Catholics in the Washington, DC area.
If you can’t get enough, watch their rendition of “Blues For Alice.”
And if you really can’t get enough (and live near Cincinnati), check out the Riverboat Jazz Concert hosted by the Dominican Novices aboard the S.S. River Chief: Monday July 18th at 7:30 P.M.
Catholic culture – it’s a beautiful (sounding) thing.
