You’ve commented in the past on the wonderful music at your parish, and it sounds like that has continued.
I think the Eastern Rite parishes avoided all the contagion of the red-diapers because many American Catholics may not be aware that there are even Eastern Rites in the Church! Sometimes obscurity and not being well know may be a blessing. When I visit Williamsburg, I always go to the Byzantine Rite parish there. Absolutely splendid! Their Divine Liturgy is beautiful and spiritually refreshing!
I simply love our music department. Don't know what we'd do without our music director, he's just a stone cold genius and he keeps the standard high.
