There is so much I could say about this church. I sang for two Masses here last Sunday morning. There were people in the pews during Mass... but no way I was going to whip out my camera in the middle of that! Corpus Christi's choir director, Matt Henry, does a fabulous job. There is a wealth of talent in the parish. A very talented trio, flautist and two beautiful choirs blessed my heart as they joined in on Holy Spirit Come to Me.
So much happened here... from Friday morning Mass... and the St Gerard Circle women's meeting presentation, Saturday night concert, Sunday Masses and the awesome school visit Monday morning St. Francis Xavier downtown. The Holy Spirit moved on this adventure... because people were willing to let it happen.
It was an email from Dena Armstrong that started it all. When she called a few months ago her message said, "I want you for everything you do. How do we make this happen?!" The Spirit moved from that moment forward. There was opposition at times, but God managed to make His way around it and with prayer and determination so much was accomplished.
When people are blessed by something we do... we can know we're on the right path. For me and what I do... it takes that spark on the other end of an event to make it great. Mediocre or just so-so would be easier. Great is possible if we put in the effort. Thank you, Dena Armstrong, for listening to that Still Small Voice, answering yes to God's call and giving every part of it your absolute best.
2 And do not be conformed to this [a]world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may [b]prove what the will of God is, that which is good and [c]acceptable and perfect.
