There was a terrific article in Sunday's Chicago Tribune (by the paper's Arts Critic) highlighting a new jazz event (this week). The "divine inspiration" came to a leading jazz musician in town. One who also happens to be a priest. I love that the article quoted an e-mail from Cardinal George about how Fr. John Moulder's priestly vocation "means sharing who he is [so] the gift of his priesthood is also shared in his performances."
Looking to help Catholic Charities and several other food pantry services in the area, Father used his contacts among club owners and musicians to create a roster of events. Clubs and artists work pro bono, and the entrance fees go to the good banks.
For the (heart-warming) article and the festival schedule, go to the Tribune site.
