Blessing of our new church organ

Before Mass at 10:15 a.m., Father Avis with the assistance of the Old St. Patrick choir conducted a blessing ceremony of the newly installed pipe organ.

Led by Father, the choir sang Psalm 150 - "Laudate Dominum" - scriptural poetry that gives praise to the Lord referring to the use of musical instruments: such as trumpet, lute, harp, timbrels (an ancient percussion instrument much like a tamborine), choir, strings and organ.

Those in attendance reported that the new organ sounded majestic... "just like a cathedral organ..." according to one parishioner.
