We are dedicating and blessing our new organ this Sunday, so what could be a better celebratory entrance hymn than “Cry Out With Joy” by James Chepponis? This version by the Pittsburgh Diocesan Choir is thrillingly done, and you can hear how the organ trumpets are put to good use. Check it out below.
This weekend, our parish also marks the 100th anniversary of the first pastor being named to our parish, Father (later Monsignor) Joseph McLaughlin. And we will be celebrating (a few days early) our parish feast day.
It’s going to be a busy weekend.
