Monday greetings to all from a very cold and windy Chicago. I arrived back home yesterday afternoon after having spent four days in New Orleans at the 31st annual Johanes Hofinger Conference.
One of the highlights of my time there was a reunion concert given by the Dameans. Not sure how many of you remember them. They were all seminarians at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans, hence their name "Dameans." I remember singnig their music back in the 70s and 80s, most notable Beginning Today, All That We Have, Song of Thanksgiving, and We Praise You, O Lord.
Here's another shot of the wider stage shortly before Father Richard Fragomeni's keynote presentation.
It's always a wonderful thing to experience the warm hospitality of the people of Louisiana. There were a little over a thousand people in attendance. Brother Mickey McGrath gave one of the plenum sessions and his presentations are always moving and challenging.
Well, folks, it's back to the grind here at WLP.
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
