Our Priest, Our Organ!

I am very proud of the parish in which I am currently worshipping, St Philip’s Blackburn North, and of our parish priest, Fr Nicholas Dillon. Here he is demonstrating the new Cornopean stop on the organ. In fact, we probably won’t be hearing a lot of it tomorrow, as we are starting to use the chants from Mass XVII during lent – lots of unaccompanied plain song. I’m practicing up the proper entrance chant, and we will be finishing with the Ave Regina Caelorum. Should be fun! 10:30 at Junction Road in Blackburn North tomorrow morning.

About Schütz

I am Catholic, married to Cathy, father of Maddy & Mia. Since 2002, I have been the Executive Officer of the Ecumenical & Interfaith Commission of the Archdiocese of Melbourne. I was once a Lutheran pastor, but a "year of grace" and soul-searching led me into the Catholic Church. It was a bumpy ride, but with the support of my (still Lutheran) wife, I was finally confirmed on June 16, 2003.

    I was there Saturday for the EF LOW Mass at 9 am . Have decided to worship back there every second Sunday at 9am -the other I worship at the Cathedral . The deacon assisting I recognised from St Aloysius and realised that there is a connection between both churches- i think the St Aloysius choir sang at st phillips one night before Christmas.
    Oh well hope to catch up with HWAET tomorrow
